Tomato flowers and a fruit begining to formIn the 16th and 17th centuries, many Europeans believed tomatoes were poisonous because of the plant's relationship to nightshade and tobacco, although they were grown as garden ornamentals. The first traces of use of tomato as food date back to South Europe in the first half of the 18th century. Only in the second half of the 19th century cultivation of the tomato as food begins to be widespread, mainly in southern Italy and in France. Vincenzo Corrado, a cook in the neapolitan court, describes recipes with tomatoes in the book Il cuoco galante, first edition 1773, adding more recipes with tomatoes in the 1819 edition. In 1809, Nicolas Appert, a chef from Paris, published L'art de conserver le substances alimentaires d'origine animale et végétale pour plusieurs années, a book on food conservation where he deals also with preserving tomato.
