Example text

In addition, the cookbook is also contradictory in its scientific–aesthetic–psychic culinary proposal. As mentioned, the presence of irony plays down the fascist (if not nationalist) agenda that definitely informs the manifesto, the formulas, and the dinners. Nevertheless, the Futurists clearly selected the documents that went into the cookbook and circumscribed these materials with a strong ideological framework. The Holy Palate Restaurant After the manifesto of Futurist cooking appeared, the Futurists announced the opening of a restaurant in Turin.

Cooking and eating habits –– determined by class, culture, and nationality among other factors –– were the most resistant to change. Traditional customs reproduced through known recipes led to an inclination to accept given tastes, adjusted to one’s own personal likes and dislikes. To complete the total revolution of the senses and to forge a new modern Italian, as they had already set out to do with their aesthetic projects, the Futurists now felt they had to approach the long-established national bourgeois traditions of cooking.

This area of human intervention rethinks not only culture but also nature –– albeit indirectly and unintentionally. Cooking undoes and reconstitutes nature through manipulating and transforming food. The Futurists appropriated cooking so as to take active charge of changes in body and in mind. Cooking has the potential to make these changes, but it proceeds gradually by introducing incremental innovations. Gastronomy, itself a revolutionary field as it emerged in the late eighteenth century, negotiated between innovation and normativity, between a view of bourgeois culture as changing (movement) and futurist banquets 3 an institutionalization of bourgeois taste.
