You have a little gem there, I'd love to have a copy. That said, keep in
mind that the author is using the earliest Italian recipes of which he
knows, not the earliest European recipes and, IIRC, he doesn't source the
Native American recipes. You also need to keep in mind that there is a
linguistic shift as the new plants become associated with the old names. I
don't think Miliano carefully differentiates the potential for a dish to be
either Old World or New World squashes.
I haven't seen a copy for a number of years, so memory is a little vague.
Be critical if using the book as a culinary history reference, but enjoy the
book. It is well written and probably reasonably accurate.
