The movement without stars 

Every Cesarina is a house, a family, a recipe and a local area. This book is the first major account to be written about them.
We Cesarine – hundreds of women and men nationwide – are the am- bassadors of Italian cooking. We welcome to our tables people from all over the world to share and impart our culinary knowledge –a distinctive element of our culture – with meals, courses and visits to local producers. Our aims are to teach mindful food consumption with respect for native agroalimentary resources; to protect biodiversity and local rural econ- omies; to raise awareness of sustainability and discourage any negative impact on the environment, avoiding waste, as befits home cooking. We often say that we are a Slow Food of households that seek to serve the whole supply chain at the table. This is why Cesarine is a Slow Food Community, the first to extend across the whole of Italy. 

Catering, too, has developed along family models and is now returning to tradition. Cesarine keep these models alive and hand them down. We don’t feel the need for stars in our homes precisely because we believe not in the refashioning of Italian cooking but, rather, in its authenticity. We aren’t so much stars as a planet to belong to. 

We are housewives, teachers, office workers and free-lance profession- als, Italians who love cooking and telling guests about their family reci- pes. We began a few years ago out of passion, setting out from Bologna, then looking for and finding Cesarine everywhere in Italy. Our ultimate goal is to pass on the identity of Italian cooking, the best known in the world, and to create a new form of domestic economy. And, incredibly, we are doing just that.

In this book you can read our “tagliatelling”, family and food stories that allow you to enter some of our houses and discover what’s inside.
