Explore the Regional Cooking of Italy. La Cucina is a circa 1950 snapshot of true Italian country cooking. Anxious to preserve Italy’s culinary heritage, the Italian Academy of Cuisine sent thousands of associates to villages all over the country to interview grandmothers and farmers at their stoves. Their result is an extraordinary collection of 2,000 authentic recipes (including 8 for turkey!) with ingredients and techniques specific to each micro region. Hardcover: 928 pages; 10 black and white illustrations. 10.29" x 7.35"
With global roots, Thanksgiving celebrations reflect our unique American heritages.

Carefully selected for their beauty, their craftsmanship and their sense of tradition, each curated piece is inspired by holdings in our National Museum of American History’s Division of Domestic Life.
