Alberto Grandi

Associate Professor in Economic History at the University of Parma, he is a food historian and expert in the history of Italian cuisine from the Middle Ages to the present day. He is the author of the podcast DOI – Denomination of Invented Origin, in which he recounts how historical research almost always disproves the archaic origins of our culinary specialities, leading us to discover that many recipes to which we attribute ancient roots… are actually recent inventions.
