Catalogue Note

Second edition, a reissue of the first of 1692 with a new title-page and dedication (the second part was first published in 1694). Latini started his career in the service of the Barberini family in Rome and became scalco (the courtier in charge of the kitchens and therefore banquets) at the royal court of Naples. He was the first in Italy to promote the use of tomatoes in cooking (until this date they were mostly used as decoration).
