Meet Clara Cannucciari, the newest YouTube sensation.

This 93-year-old great-grandmother from upstate New York provides recipes for comfort food she’s been making since the 1930’s.

Clara takes a look into how simple it really is to make simple yet delicious dishes that the whole family could love.

She says it was her mother who taught her how to cook the meals she now recreates on her cooking show “Depression Cooking with Clara“.

Her grandson films the episodes, which feature the bubbly old woman sharing stories of her childhood, explaining how to make the meals her family ate during the worldwide economic downturn.

Born in Chicago in 1915, she quit high school to work in a factory as a teenager. These days, she shares her wisdom from Finger Lakes.
