Description

Italy, in the early 1800s, saw the rise of the professional and merchants classes mostly concentrated in the central and northern regions of the country. However as this class, the borghesia Italia, developed over the course of the 19th. century, concurrently with the development of a new nation, it is possible to trace how the Italian cookery book both reflected and influenced the forging of a united culinary identity, which would, eventually become the pride of Italy.
