Jeanne Caròla Francesconi (Naples, 1903 – Naples 1995)[citation needed] was an Italian chef and cookbook author, considered "the dean of Neapolitan cuisine".[1][2] Her most important work is La cucina napoletana (1965), which has been called the "bible" of Neapolitan cuisine[1] and the most important Neapolitan cookbook after Cavalcanti.[1][3] She has been quoted in several English-language cookbooks, such as Precious Cargo: How Foods From the Americas Changed The World by Dave DeWitt[4] and The Food Of Italy di Claudia Roden.[5]

Even though there may be public details about Francesconi's personal life, she is remembered as the hostess of several legendary dinners for Naples's upper class.[6][7]
