Tembi Locke husband, and what is the memoir “the scratch” about? Netflix’s drama series From Scratch features Amahle “Amy” Wheeler (Zoe Saldaa), a Texan student who meets her soulmate, a Sicilian chef named Lino (Eugenio Mastrandrea) while studying in Italy. The story encompasses the harsh and heartbreaking reality of true love and loss. Amy went to Europe with the sole intention of seeing the art and culture there; little did she know that her life would never be the same.
When Lino and Amy go to America to be together after falling profoundly and hopelessly in love, a startling cancer diagnosis rocks their life. The pair, who got married and had a daughter together, find strength in love, family, and food (especially pasta) despite Lino’s deteriorating health. The 2019 New York Times bestselling memoir From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home by actor Tembi Locke served as the inspiration for the “wonderful and sad” story. Tembi is also the executive producer and co-creator of the show. Rosario “Saro” Gullo, Tembi Locke’s beloved spouse, passed away from cancer in 2012, just as Amy’s husband, Lino, tragically loses his struggle with the disease in From Scratch.

Tembi and Robert fell in love and wed in 2016. In 2020, the two were married. Although Tembi’s daughter Zoela did attend the ceremony in person, most guests used Zoom because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tembi first found it difficult to continue living her life following Saro’s passing. She specifically questioned whether she would ever again be in a romantic love relationship. Her perspective, however, shifted when Tembi’s sister Attica, the From Scratch showrunner, reminded her that “if you can fall in love once, and you can partner well once, you can do it again.”

Tembi was naturally “terrified” of Robert reading her frightful, tear-jerking memoir because she thought he would compare himself to Saro. But eventually, she gave him the go-ahead. Robert finally finished reading From Scratch and said the most beautiful words: “I was given this book as a gift. because it provides me with a blueprint of your heart.” We really need a tissue, please!
Tembi said, “I think that’s what it means to be a partner after loss. The person needs to comprehend that the blueprint of her heart contains a significant portion that is fractured and needs constant mending and re-engagement. When these two met, “the angels undoubtedly conspired,” as Tembi stated on Instagram. Netflix is presently offering From Scratch for streaming.

The possibility that Robert might draw comparisons between himself and Saro caused Tembi to be “terrified” of him reading her terrifying, heartbreaking tale. She eventually gave him the go though. After finishing From Scratch, Robert said the sweetest thing: “I was given this book as a gift since it gives me with a blueprint of your heart.” Please give us a tissue, we need one.
“I believe that is what it means to be a companion after loss,” Tembi added. The other person needs to understand that a sizable section of your heart’s blueprint is broken and requires continual repair and engagement. According to Tembi’s Instagram post, “the angels surely cooperated” when these two met. From Scratch is currently available for watching on Netflix.
What is in the Novel “The Scratch”?
Following aspiring artist Amy (Zoe Saldaa) as she meets and falls in love with Lino (Eugenio Mastrandrea), a dashing Sicilian chef, during her study abroad program in Florence, is the plot of the movie From Scratch. With the daughter they adopted at birth, the two create a life together in Los Angeles, a life that is cruelly cut short by Lino’s premature death from cancer.
There is no doubt about what will happen from the start, whether you choose to read the book or the entire series. The autobiography by Locke, From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home, served as the basis for the narrative.
While authoring the book was a private experience for Locke, bringing her life to the screen as a member of a larger team proved to be a test of her emotional endurance. The Locke family’s most trying times were fortunately revisited under the guidance of Tembi’s younger sister, Attica Locke, who proposed them Tembi’s memoir after serving as a writer and producer on Little Fires Everywhere for Reese Witherspoon’s production firm Hello Sunshine. Both sisters agree that being able to experience the process together was fantastic.
