Neapolitan cuisine, a gourmand book

"The Neapolitan cuisine. The story of a city through the history of its cuisine”, a book by Edmondo Capecelatro
“La cucina napoletana. La storia di una città attraverso la storia della sua cucina” (The Neapolitan cuisine. The story of a city through the history of its cuisine) by Edmondo Capecelatro is a book of the senses and a choir book. From the first pages we walk the streets of Naples and at every corner, every place we meet people, scents, calls that evoke food. The author manages to coexist distant past - from the Greek Neapolis - far less - Naples the capital - and today, inspired by their characters: greedy kings and gourmet beggars, chef of the court, painters and poets. Challenging the rhetoric of "Neapolitan" with strokes of personal memories and highly cultured quotes, always supported by a knowledge that is full of passion, Edmondo Capecelatro captures in full the spirit dear to the Lettore goloso - Greedy reader -  (series edited by Allan Bay): Neapolitan cuisine told not only as food but as a culture. A culinary culture from which they emerge, alternating from chapter to chapter, territorial ingredients from the sea and the land, rich menu of the festivities, its bestseller (from coffee to pizza, from the baba to the pastiera), and finally, the conception and representation of food in figurative art and theater. Looking through the last page, you will have the impression that you have learned what makes the unique flavor of Naples, the city of the lazzari, who had only a plate of macaroni and a glass of water of snow. “La cucina napoletana.
