May we Celebrate Italian Food done easy!
For Italians, cooking and sharing food is no less than a way of life, whether it is at home with friends, in a humble trattoria or a fine-dining restaurant.
Wherever it’s eaten, it’s always based around delicious produce that elevates each and every dish. In fact, Italian food varies widely by region – and even village to village – and according to the time of year.
Many ingredients are used across the country with some more so in certain regions than others.
Broadly speaking, northern Italian food centers around butter, meat, potatoes, pork, Parmigiano and other types of cheeses, while southern cooking is more focused on olive oil, tomatoes, eggplant, capers and fresh fish
Italians are known for their use of herbs in cooking, especially oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, rosemary, and sage.
Cheese also plays an important role in Italian cuisine.
There are more than 400 types of cheese made in Italy, with Parmesan, mozzarella, and asiago among the best known worldwide. Prosciutto ham, the most popular ingredient of the Italian antipasto (first course) was first made in Parma, a city that also gave its name to Parmesan cheese.
