While pasta and pizza represent the ubiquitous face of Italian cuisine, there is much more to the country's culinary history. Italy's culinary roots date as far as 2000 years ago!
The passion for food is visible in the incredible variety of its regional cuisines. Such diversity began to spread after the fall of the Roman Empire when the city-states started to explore and uphold their individual identities. Each region developed its own way of cooking from the meatball preparations, through tomato sauce to quality and characteristics of local cheese and wine. The north because famous for Tuscan beef, Marches for black truffles and Provolone for its mozzarella. Little by little a wide variety of bread, pasta, and cooking techniques became the standard.
Over the course of history, Italian cuisine never stopped evolving, combining local skills and produce with outside influences. When eating out in Italy, pay attention to the food. Each dish tells a story of culture, history, and climate.
