The linkages among food, culture, and identity have long occupied small numbers of folklorists and anthropologists. Among Italian Americans, food and cooking are powerful expressions of their ties to the past and their current identities. Many seem to believe that they are much, much more than what they eat, and that too many negative stereotypes link Italians and food. Cookbooks remain some of the most fascinating and ubiquitous texts that describe their eating habits. Italian Americans invite cooks, collectors, and scholars among Italian Americana readers to take cooking and eating seriously.
