Brodetto di farina bianca

(Light broth with flour)

Quantity for one person.

Dissolve a spoon of flour a little cold water. Pour it in half litre of salted water and cook it until the light broth will reach the right density. dress it with fresh butter. This poor course was particularly recommended to "puerpere" (women who have just given birth) and wet-nurses, because it increased the flow of milk. It was also suggested for nervous breakdowns as people believed it fattened the nerves. It was considered a delicious course if one added stock cubes of fried bread.
