"Fifty years ago, a group of Italian scholars gathered together to discuss a problem: how to preserve traditional Italian cooking. They formed the Italian Academy of Cuisine to document classic recipes from every region. The academies more than seven thousand associates spread out to villages everywhere, interviewing grandmothers and farmers at their stoves, transcribing their recipes-many of which had never been documented."- Jayson Home and Garden
