Bartolomeo Scappi (c. 1500 – 13 April 1577) was a famous Renaissance chef. He served several cardinal and pope Pius IV and Pius V. He acquired fame in 1570 when his monumental cookbook Opera dell'arte del cucinare was published. In the book he lists approximately 1000 recipes of the Renaissance cuisine and describes cooking techniques and tools, apparently giving the first known picture of a fork. 

Join us as we dive into the life of a chef of the 16th century. Chef Philip has done his best to interpret the recipes, while Shayla has chosen delicious wines to pair. Ernie Pino will tell the story of Bartolomeo Scappi's life in between course.
