John F. Mariani (Author), Lidia Matticchio Bastianich (Foreword). Making sense of Italian food�s history is no small undertaking, but like any true professional, longtime Esquire food correspondent and legendary restaurant columnist Mariani handles the subject with ease.

John F. Organized into categories and loosely chronological, Mariani�s trove of facts and anecdotes helps chronicle the cuisine�s rise to fame. Italian food had some troubles early on. Often viewed as cheap peasant grub, it took decades to gain traction outside of Italy.

John Mariani's superb writing has captured perfectly the rise of Italian food throughout history, unraveling the evolution of a cuisine that confused the world before conquering it! How Italian Food Conquered the World will fascinate future generations who wish to know more about.

John Mariani's superb writing has captured perfectly the rise of Italian food throughout history, unraveling the evolution of a cuisine that confused the world before conquering it! How Italian Food Conquered the World will fascinate future generations who wish to know more about Italian food and wine culture. Tony May, restaurateur and owner of San Domenico and SD26.

Here, John Mariani shows how the Italian immigrants to America created, through perseverance and sheer necessity, an Italian-American food culture, and how it became a global obsession. Featuring evil villains such as the Atkins diet and French chefs, this is a rollicking tale of how Italian cuisine rose to its place as the most beloved fare in the world, through the lives of the people who led the charge. With savory anecdotes from these top chefs and restaurateurs: - Mario Batali - Danny Meyer - Tony Mantuano - Michael Chiarello - Giada de Laurentiis - Giuseppe Cipriani - Nigella Lawson.

Start by marking How Italian Food Conquered the World as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. Lidia Matticchio Bastianich (Foreword). Mariani does a good job of chronicling the history of Italian American cuisine, but the narration falters when discussing present day. He goes on tangents about the Sopranos and stereotypes associated with Italian Americans. Additionally, he discusses higher end restaurants like Marea in NYC but completely ignores places like Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill, which he gives on line to in a statement that it's not real Tuscan food (but what is?)

Mariani’s informative and entertaining examination of the rise of Italian cookery suffers from a flaw all too common these days in American book publishing: title inflation. Not merely is it questionable to claim that Italian food has conquered the world, this really isn’t the subject of the book, which deals almost entirely with the rise of Italian cuisine in the United States. No doubt Mariani himself is an innocent party to this - the title was probably dreamed up by someone at his publisher’s office - but the reader should be warned not to expect what the title promises.

Authors : Mariani, John F. Title : How Italian Food Conquered the World. Product Category : Books. He was the winner of the 2009 National Magazine Award and was nominated for the James Beard Journalism Award. He has been called by The Philadelphia Inquirer 'the most influential food-wine critic in the popular press.

Not so long ago, Italian food was regarded as a poor man's gruel-little more than pizza, macaroni with sauce, and red wines in a box. Here, John Mariani shows how the Italian immigrants to America created, through perseverance and sheer necessity, an Italian-American food culture, and how it became a global obsession. The book begins with the Greek, Roman, and Middle Eastern culinary traditions before the boot-shaped peninsula was even called "Italy," then takes readers on a journey through Europe and across the ocean to America alongside the poor but hopeful Italian immigrants who slowly but surely won over the hearts and minds of Americans by way of their stomachs. Featuring evil villains such as the Atkins diet and French chefs, this is a rollicking tale of how Italian cuisine rose to its place as the most beloved fare in the world, through the lives of the people who led the charge.

I'm not always in agreement with Mariani's assessments of different restaurants and personalities, but there's no denying that he spins an engaging tale with a lot of insight into how Italian cuisine spread from Italy to far flung locales (most notably America, which comprises most of the book). Unless you're Italian and a chef and already thoroughly steeped in the long journey this particular cuisine has taken, you will most likely find something worth noting on every page. No matter what, the writing will keep you entertained throughout the book.

I enjoyed reading this book because my Mom was born in Italy and she cooked a lot of meals that were much different that my friends' Moms cooked. Although some of those meals are now cooked in many restaurants. Mainly I think this book is for people who are interested in the history of food from Italy and for people who may be traveling to Italy and want to know more about the regions and the food of those regions. I even learned some history of Italy in this book. I took off one star because it goes into too much detail about some restaurants.

This is a delightfully rich book which might also serve as a history of the United States as seen from the perspective of food.

While it is understandable that Mariani would spend considerable space on New York City and even Los Angeles, I would have appreciated more about the role of Italian food in the areas between the two coasts.

Occasionally Mariani adds recipes at the end of chapters. Yummie!

Mariani is not well served by his proofreader(s) at Palgrave Macmillan who allowed such blunders as the following. Page 50 provides an annoying repetition: "Originally it had been set up set up just to serve the clients of a bordello in the building." Page 94 has a sentence with two past tenses: "... Americans did not see the insult because they had were so fascinated by the lifestyle." Page 133 renames the United States: "Once Americans accepted drier wines, the Unites States would become a wine-drinking nation." Finally on p. 182 an important "of" is dropped: "... photographers recreated the paparazzi's black-and-white flashbulb photos the 1950s and shot models..."

Book arrived soon after payment in excellent condition. Not only does it give a decent history of how Italian food became popular, it provides a history of how, when, and why Italians emigrated from Italy. Some sample recipes are included in the text.

Love this book! Filled with tons of fun information for Italian Americans or anyone who appreciates the history of food. Gave copies to my Italian aunts for Christmas.

Nicely done recap of Italian food and it's changing styles in both Italy and the US. A better title might be how it conquered the US, very little detail of its influence in other countries. A very knowledgable author.

Fun read and fascinating as a study of culture and cuisine.
I love history and I love italian food so this is a great thing for me. Great finding out where this food we love so much has its origins.
