Abstract:

"This book is about a book. Its author, Antonio Latini (1642-1696), was an experienced cook, steward, and banquet manager who worked in Rome and central Italy, and then served some of the leading families and individuals in Naples, at the time Italy's largest city and the capital of its largest state. The book is, in large part, what we may call a cookbook, but in fact includes much more (and something less) than we would expect to find today in a cookbook. Its title, in its full Baroque richness and length, is The Modern Steward, or the Art of Preparing Banquets Well, with the Choicest Rules of Stewardship, Taught and Applied to Benefit Professionals, and Other Scholars (Lo scalco alla moderna, overo l'arte di ben disporre li conviti, con le regole più scelte di scalcheria, insegnate e poste in prattica a beneficio de' professori, ed altri studiosi)....Latini's text is massive: about one thousand pages, divided in two volumes....In this work I will offer edited translations of selections from both volumes...with accompanying notes and several short essays on related topics...."--Introduction, p. [1]-2.
