Dickie, John.
Delizia! The Epic History of the Italians and Their Food.

New York Simon & Schuster: 2008.

"How did the Italians come to eat so well? The answer is in the region's historic cities, says John Dickie: for a thousand years they have been magnets for everything that makes for great eating. From the bustle of medieval Milan's marketplace to the banqueting halls of Renaissance Ferrara, from street stalls in the fetid alleyways of 19th-century Naples to the noisy trattorie of postwar Rome, Dickie shows how taste, creativity, and civic pride blended with princely arrogance, political violence, and dark intrigue to create the world's favorite cuisine."

Hardcover. 6.5"x9", 367 pages, several black & white illustrations, dust jacket. Fine.
