The Italian Kitchen. History of a culture

A perfect illustration of how to pursue and think about a complete history, which succeeds in combining ideas, values and practices.

A fine book.Jacques Le Goff A highly enjoyable read that succeeds in renewing our love for the feast as a key moment in the history of civil existence. Tullio Gregory
