De honesta voluptate et valetudine (On honest indulgence and good health, often shortened to De honesta voluptate) was the first cookbook ever printed.[1] Written ca. 1465 by Bartolomeo Platina, it first appeared between 1470 and 1475 in Rome, and in 1475 in Venice. Written in Latin, it was largely a translation of recipes by Martino da Como from his Libro de Arte Coquinaria (ca. 1465).[2] The book was frequently reprinted over the next 60-odd years, and translated in Dutch, French, and German.[3]
