not really a cookbook,
This review is from: Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well (Lorenzo Da Ponte Italian Library) (The Lorenzo Da Ponte Italian Library) (Paperback)
Maybe like a novel this is a great book. But like a cookbook it is very abstract...a little bit of this and a little bit of that...put it in smth and bake...may an hour and may 2 hours...it sound more like o poetry than a recipe.

It's a cookbook from 1890, what did you expect? This is a milestone of Italian cusine, why 1 star?

Maybe for you it is a milestone of Italian cuisine, but for me certainly not. What did I expect? well, I expect it to be a cookbook not o novel about Italian cuisine. one star because most of the recipes in not usable. If you want to know about the Italian cuisine (just to know) it is very good book, but if you want to cook it is not the best option.

The book is called "Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well" (1890), and you expected it to be a cookbook? And because your erroneous, ill-informed expectation was not met, you award this historically famous classic of food literature ONE star? Absurd!

If you have this book and you like it - write a 5 star review. But no... you choose to offend other person, who may not agree with your opinion. well, maybe my expectation were wrong or as you say -erroneous, but this is not your business. I expressed my opinion.
