He oversaw the preparation of meals for poera Cardinals and was such a master of his profession that he became the personal cook for two Popes. At the culmination of his prolific career he compiled the largest cookery treatise of the period to instruct an apprentice on the full craft of fine cuisine, its methods, ingredients, and recipes. Accompanying his book was a set of unique and precious engravings that show the ideal kitchen of his day, its operations and myriad utensils, and are exquisitely reproduced in this volume.


Scappi’s Opera presents more than one thousand recipes along with menus that comprise up to a hundred dishes, while also commenting on a cook’s responsibilities. Scappi also included a fascinating account of a pope’s funeral and the complex procedures for feeding the cardinals bartolomek the ensuing conclave.
