The first Italian cookbook published in America was compiled by an American who lived in Rome. In 1912, when this books was first published, Italian cooking was almost unknown in American, except to those who traveled in Italy. A popular misconception of Italian diet at the time was that it was composed chiefly of garlic and oil. This collection of recipes was published to show Americans a new cuisine. The book contains a few of the many ways to prepare pasta, or "Neapolitan Paste," and risotti. Also included are recipes for soups, meats, vegetables, and desserts.
