Which is too bad (that Italian doesn't get cooked/served more often, I
mean) -- period Italian is my favorite, both to cook and to eat. There's
lots of good period, translated, sources available, and researching/cooking
and eating it is like opening up the culinary box of crayolas and finding
the full 64 colors (rather than the 8 color English box -- English being
more of a challenge because of a narrower vegetable and spice pallete).
Eating it (vs English, just to carry on the analogy) is the difference
between a finely done fresco and an exquisite miniature.  Both lovely when
done right.
