'Deborah Krohn tackles what has to be considered by far the most important cookbook of the Renaissance: Bartolomeo Scappi's Opera. Known not only for its massive text but also for its much reproduced illustrations, it has remained in many ways a somewhat mysterious unicum in the realm of high end cookery. Now, thanks to an innovative approach mixing book history, food history and the history of illustration in the sixteenth century, Scappi's cookbook finally finds its place in the context of sixteenth century publishing, a dynamic market in which both authors and publishers experimented with innovative formulas. A welcome contribution in more than one field.' Allen Grieco, Villa I Tatti, Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, Italy
