Innocent & charming note book of a lifetime's work in a bourgeois Aretine kitchen. Delicious recipes and touching use of dialect and the then used gergo Francese in the kitchen! Handwritten, it begins:”The month of March 1842. For refined dishes and household dishes” and ends with the words ”Lavorate bene.....e fatto e mangiato - Well prepared, cooked and eaten”
