Roast lamb, stewed meat, pane carasadu, grapes, quince, and, of course, macaroni—these are some of the offerings served each year on November 1 in Sardinia, Italy. Follow a Sardinian woman as she shuffles around her home lighting candles, praying, and cooking an elaborate feast in honor of those who have died, celebrating a unique and ancient tradition of remembrance called la cena delle anime, or the supper for dead souls. 

Plays with The Wandering Chef
