About The Author
In 1932 Italian Futurist Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, proposed a revolution in food. Described by Elizabeth David as a 'publication of preposterous new dishes', The Futurist Cookbook is one of the most unusal books on food published during the twentieth century, written as an artistic endeavour, it flirted with Fascist ideals, and challenged all the rules of previous cooking, especially those of Pellegrino Artusi. The Futurist project was advanced with cries of 'Death to Pasta', the abandonment of knives and forks and one of the best artistic jokes of the century.
