Preceded by a historical introduction to the dishes by Anna Maria Evangelista, Professor of History of Cuisine, the demonstration cooking lesson conducted by the founders of the School, Cristina Blasi and Gabriella Mari, includes a tasting of dishes from the original cookbooks "Le cuciniere" of the various regions of Italy, a real plunge into the past to discover the rich culinary tradition of our country, which the contribution of stubborn and modern women has made it possible to reach us.

It dates back to the mid-nineteenth century The true Genoese cooker, the Cuciniera Bolognese, the Piedmontese Cuciniera, titles of some small volumes released just a few years apart, focusing on the figure of the cook, the cook who in the past worked mainly within religious communities, hospitals or convents and which in the nineteenth century became a more evolved woman, with increasingly specific tasks, losing the connotation of simple scullery. Destined for families and no longer for the cooks of the great noble families, which is why we will always talk about economic cooking or family cooking, these books were often the work of anonymous male authors who hid behind a female pseudonym.

The poor dress emphasizes their destination to the kitchen environment where they would have been wasted and then thrown away when rendered unusable. With the release of the first edition of Pellegrino Artusi in the 1891, these small works will be condemned to oblivion, having no more reason to exist, and this shows their extreme rarity.

The event, conceived for the second edition of theWomen's legacy, an event dedicated to the fundamental contribution of female figures to culture in its various forms, offers the opportunity to appreciate the ever decisive contribution of the female universe to the world of culinary science.

The "Cordon Bleu", Born 34 years ago in Florence thanks to the intuition and passion of Gabriella Mari and Cristina Blasi, with the intention of combining tradition with innovation in culinary science, it is a prime example. And it is also the most concrete response to the recent controversy, the expression of an unjustified male-dominated skepticism, of which the chef Gianfranco Vissani is the spokesman, who would like to relegate women to the margins of the kitchen area where he would reserve the only field of pastry because they would heavy and more decorative than a restaurant kitchen.

Anna Evangelista after graduating from the School of Archival and Paleography in Florence, she graduated in History of Theater and Performing Arts. For a long time he worked on archive sources, dealing with parties, banquets and shows between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Between the 1996 and the 1997 he held a series of columns for the "Green Line" transmission, modernizing recipes from ancient recipe books; At the table with the King, published by Polistampa in the 1999, is the title of the publication that came out at the end of this collaboration.

From the 2013 he teaches at the “Cordon Bleu” at the Bachelor in Italian Culinary Art, where he teaches courses on the history of nutrition, history of Italian cuisine and history of Tuscan cuisine, creating recipes extracted from texts from the Middle Ages with the boys of the academic program nineteenth century.
