Long before the Barefoot Contessa, Chef Boyardee, and Little Caesars, there was Italian family-style cooking. And before that? John Mariani shares with us the history of his ancestors' cuisine, from its foundations during the Roman Empire to its domination in today's global market. Here, he shows how Italian immigrants to America created, through perseverance and sheer necessity, an Italian-American food culture that became a global obsession. This is the 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 top chefs and restaurateurs including Mario Batali (Babbo, Otto, Eataly), Giada De Laurentiis, Guiseppe Cipriani (Cipriani S.A.), and Tony Montuano (Spiaggia), as well as recipes to try along the way, How Italian Food Conquered the World invites the reader to participate in a culture that has captivated and fed the world over. .
