Welcome to Artusi cooking appliances. Inspired by the legendary Pellegrino Artusi, the father of Italian cuisine, we have created our range to live up to his legacy. Times may have changed since he wrote ‘The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well’ but the essence of a lovingly prepared meal bringing people together will always remain.
Our products are designed with the modern day home cook in mind. Sleek lines and high in functionality and performance. And all are made to the highest global standards and go through rigorous testing procedures. So whether you are a casual cook or a true artist in the kitchen, we want our cookers to play a part in your enjoyment of the principles laid down by Artusi himself.
It’s not just about the finished product.
It’s about the process, the action.
The undisputed grandfather of italian cusine
Pellegrino Marcello Artusi was born in the Tuscan hillside village of Forlimpopoli in 1820. With 12 siblings food was an important topic in the Artusi household. When the family moved to Florence he began working in finance whilst dedicating any spare time to his two favourite hobbies: Literature and Cooking. It is at this time that his most famous work ‘La scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiare bene’ (The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well) started to take shape.
Artusi worshiped the scientific method of cooking. Every recipe was the result of extensive trials and experiments, something his family encouraged as they knew they could always expect something interesting and different for dinner.
Artusi was the first to include recipes from all the different regions of Italy in a single cookbook. He is often credited with establishing a truly national Italian cuisine.
Much of what we know today about Italian food can be traced back to him and his truly revolutionary publication. He may not have known it at the time, but Artusi encapsulated something that we all take for granted today and something that still brings the family together: The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well.
It is with this philosophy in mind that we created the Artusi range of cooking appliances for today’s home cook.
