Like a vegetarian Silver Spoon, the Duke of Salaparuta's Vegetarian Italianis a major discovery: an authentic and complete guide to vegetarian Italian cuisine First published in 1930, The Duke's Tableis a massive compendium of vegetarian recipes from Italy and around the world. The brainchild of Enrico Alliata, the Duke of Salaparuta, a utopian gourmand and winemaker, the book contains 1,030 recipes. Though much Italian fare is naturally vegetarian, the Duke also worked for years to systematically remove meat from classic Italian dishes. Much like The Silver Spoon(first published in Italy in 1950, and in the U.S. in 2005), the book is unique in its scope and scale: its recipes are imaginative, playful and healthy---and all designed for family-style serving. As the Duke himself puts it, "Even though man can draw all he needs in the way of nourishment from a mere handful of seeds and fruit, he must not give up a proper meal." ebook ISBN: 978-1-61219-140-9
