Raimondo Studio is a production and creative studio based in Little Rock, Arkansas that specializes in heritage food and farm storytelling through film and cookbooks.
Margie Raimondo writes about the intersection of food, agriculture and farming.
She is a chef, farmer, author, and filmmaker. Her roots trace back to Sicily and Campania. After spending a year living in Italy on farms, she wanted to tell the stories of the beautiful people, family traditions and land in Sicily. Her film, L’anima della Sicilia (The Soul of Sicily) shows how they are adapting to climate change, lack of biodiversity, and food insecurity in an uncertain world. The farmers want transformation without losing the old ways of life.
She and her partner, Chris, built a small urban farm and kitchen. She is keeping the traditions of farming and food preservation alive by offering Simply Sicilian cooking and canning classes and farm workshops.www.urbanafarmstead.net
Her first cookbook, Mangiamo, will be released in November 2022.
