Read full description of the books:
The Kitchenary is a dual-language cooking dictionary and handbook of Italian food philosophy. Enjoy discovering the unspoken attitudes that determine how and why the table is the focal point of Italian identity and the passion with which Italians regard their culinary heritage.
Although some staples in the Italian diet have been produced since Roman times, many traditional methods and tools are remembered first-hand only by the older generations, as is often the case with disappearing artisan products. However, the sense of history Italians share is evident in the great pride they have regarding their culinary practices, where even children are familiar with traditional dishes and methods of preparation.
The Kitchenary is a unique combination of cooking terms, history and attitudes presented in Italian and English. University Italian instructor Brook Nestor brings 18 years of insight to the impassioned cook, traveler and language buff. Discover little-known facts about staples in the Italian diet: was pasta really imported from China? Learn language subtleties like the difference between "salami" and "salumi" or "tavola" and "tavolo." Want to be a welcome guest in an Italian home? Find out how to eat, speak and act at an Italian table.
Whether you're reading a cookbook, preparing a meal, discussing a menu or relishing your own family history, savor the nuances of Italian cuisine as they lead you to the table and the heart of Italian identity.
