I am translating this article from my italian version. There are many sections that are not translated yet, the Italian text is left here as commented HTML. I will try to translate it myself, as soon as I find some time. Please, feel free to contribute with the translation, if you have more time than I have! --Guarracino (talk) 15:56, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Good start, it is a much needed and important article to have. It looks good so far! - Gennarous (talk) 08:18, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi, the page is now rather complete. There is one last section that I have not translated yet, related to literature and cuisine cross influence. --Guarracino (talk) 08:10, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Made some grammar corrections and added a little bit of information (you never explain why tomatoes weren't consumed; I knew, so I added.) I also wanted to ask a few things before I do anything else:

First, I wanted to ask if I could reorganize the sections a little: Classical cuisine (Romans, Greeks) could be better organized if you go by ingredient, not the dishes they are found in today. (Ex: Greeks would probably have used olive oil and honey, Romans would have used all sorts of fruits like pomegranate, apples, and grapes/raisins-all of the above are found in the modern diet.) It would also be a little easier to read if you divided up what the upper classes ate and then write what the lower classes ate. But again, before I do anything, may I?

Please, go ahead! I speak and write mainly scientific english, so I'm not fluent with other topics, in particular cuisine--Guarracino (talk) 22:17, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Some of the words you have left in Italian and have given the scientific name as a reference. May I translate to English? (You referenced some of your ingredients in a seafood dish as ensis siliqua and haustellum brandaris : In English, these would be called a razor clam and a whelk, especially in food form--Shadowkittie5460 (talk) 08:43, 16 April 2008 (UTC).

Yes, please!--Guarracino (talk) 22:17, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Please, keep this picture of tomatoes![edit]

The original image of tomatoes has been replaced, by round tomatoes. The reason why I choose the previous one is because it represent the most typical variety of tomatoes. The round ones are mainly used just for salad, not for pasta or cooked recipes.--Guarracino (talk) 22:15, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Improvements in the italian version[edit]

Hi, I improved the Italian version of this article adding more notes. I have no time to translate everything in English now, but I think it could be a good way to replace the words left in italian (names of fishes and others).--Guarracino (talk) 22:04, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Corrected a few spelling errors and fixed that unclosed italics tag[edit]

As a reminder, in english, lemon only has one m. :) Jtrainor (talk) 03:38, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

I also corrected a number of terms (for example, when referring to food, "plates" should be "dishes") and fixed some tags. The article needs a good proof-read, preferably by someone who knows Italian. It's a very good article, nevertheless, and has made me hungry!Hohenloh (talk) 16:40, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Neapolitan cuisine is now featured article in Italian[edit]

Hi, I extended a lot the Italian version of this article, and in June this has been voded as featured article on the Italian wikipedia. I have not much time now to translate the new version, but if some of you have some time, this article could improve a lot. Cheers, --Guarracino (talk) 12:43, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

The contributions and fantasy of the Neapolitan people has been extremely important in further developing an autonomous culinary culture. This may have the ring of populist truth in Italian, but in English it reveals itself as shameless pandering. Antonio Latini doesn't get mentioned yet. --Wetman (talk) 18:51, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
