I like it very much.  The new translation's editor, Prof. Luigi 
Ballerini, lectured for the Culinary Historians of Southern Calfornia 
when it came out and signed my copy.   When Renata and I told him about 
actually using it as a cookbook and why, he wanted an invitation to a 
feast.  We had better throw one some time soon!  He also went on about 
peacocks served with the skin on but not in my kitchen bub.  1.  
salmonella, 2. protected species in L.A. County.

I also recently bought a book called DaVinci's Kitchen, which is really good, and one called The Renaissance of Italian cooking, which I'm also waiting for.
