The life and work of Pellegrino Artusi on the 100th anniversary of his death. His 1891 cookbook, The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well, was a turning point in the history of Italian food, establishing a national culinary canon and creating a common culinary language for the newly unified country. His impact on Italian cooking is unmatched to this day. Panelists: Michele Scicolone, cookbook author; Roberto Ludovico, professor of Italian literature, University of Massachusetts at Amherst; Mitchell Davis, vice president of the James Beard Foundation; and chef Cesare Casella, dean of the Italian Culinary Academy. Moderated by Fabio Parasecoli, coordinator, New School Food Studies Program.
