(CBS) — Imagine a world where Italian grandmothers travel to Chicago in tiny towable houses, to cook and cook and feed you. For free.

CBS 2’s Brad Edwards lives in that world.

Here’s the deal: It’s a promotion cooked up by Uber and Johnsonville Sausage. Real Italian-born grandmothers in little homes towed by Uber vehicles will prepare home-made dishes and give the food away this weekend.

“They’re gonna love their food and I’m gonna throw kiss at them,” says “Nonna” Gina Tremonte. She says the response she’ll get will be this: “That’s a beautiful sausage.”

The Chicago treasure isn’t from around here originally. She met her husband, a strapping Chicagoan, when he visited Italy more than a half-century ago. They were married 55 years, until he passed away.
