In 1891, Pellegrino Artusi published the landmark La Scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiare bene (The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well).
Written as a cookbook for middle-class families, Artusi used intuitive and humorous insight into manners, nutrition and culinary technique to create a national cuisine, collecting recipes from all over Italy.
