Michelangelo's Grocery List
July 10, 2019 12:05pm CST
I think it was so nice of Michelangelo to illustrate his grocery list for his servant who could not read. Experts, who I suppose know about all there is to know about 16-century Italy, listed a few of the items that are on the grocery list created by Michelangelo: 1. anchovies 2. bread 3. herring 4. wine 5. fennel soup 6. wine 7. tortelli (No drawing was needed for this item.) It looks like Michelangelo had plenty to eat in 1518. Photo: openculture

That is wonderful that you have your grandmother's list. Her list really had attention to detail. I have my great-great grandmother's college notebook from Illinois Normal School. She pasted recipes on top of her class notes on many of the pages in her notebook. As a teacher myself, I would have loved to have read all of her class notes she jotted down when she was studying to be a teacher.
