Science in the kitchen and the art of eating well

by:Artusi, Pellegrino

"First published in 1891, Pelegrino Artusi's La scienza in cucina e l'arte di mangiar bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi's death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print." "Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil of lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor - humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes." "This English edition features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa."--Jacket.

Italian identity in the kitchen, or, Food and the nation

by:Montanari, Massimo, 1949-

Another entertaining and surprising food history by the scholar who has come to define the discipline, this volume draws readers into the far-flung story of how regional cuisine came to shape a collective Italian identity. From the Romans' encounters with barbarian tribes to the revival and reinvention of local Italian cooking in the twentieth century, Massimo Montanari shows how regional food practices flavored the nation's political and cultural making over time. The fusion of ancient Roman cuisine, which consisted of bread, wine, and olives, with the barbarian diet, rooted in br.

Recipes for soups like Escarole and Bean and hearty sandwiches such as the classic Italian Muffuletta make casual, easy suppers, while one-pot dinners like Giada's Chicken Vesuvio and Veal Stew with Cipollini Onions are just as simple but elegant enough for company.
