There's something about vintage cookbooks -- maybe it's the smell of the worn pages, or the splatter marks from cooks of times past -- that is just so wonderfully nostalgic. We love them so much that we've even combed through the L.A.'s Public Library files to find out more. Apparently Little Dom's chef Brandon Boudet feels the same way.

He's starting up a dinner series based on one of his favorite vintage Italian cookbooks called In Bocca this Thursday, complete with select wine pairings.

Boudet acquired the book in a rare eBay find three years ago, and says it's a one-of-a-kind copy of the now out-of-print In Bocca were printed in the late 70’s and early 80’s with various authors. The volumes are written in Italian with vague English translations, and each book features the culinary stylings of one of Italy’s eight regions.

For the first dinner this Thursday from 5:30-11 p.m., he'll be cooking spinach croquettes, risotto milanese, and proscuittini di pollo. Items will be sold a la carte. You can make reservations for the dinner here.
