Did you know?
While some of the most popular dishes associated with the Italian culture include a tempting slice of pizza and a heaping plate of pasta, there is much more to the world of Italian cooking. Throughout the many regions in Italy, the distinctive cuisine of the Italians shines through in a wide-range of eating habits, styles of cooking, and selection of local ingredients.



Did you know?
Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots as far back as the 4th century BC. Italian cuisine has its origins in Etruscan, Jewish, ancient Greek, and ancient Roman cuisines.Significant changes occurred with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, now central to the cuisine but not introduced in quantity until the 18th century. Italian cuisine is noted for its regional diversity, abundance of difference in taste, and is known to be one of the most popular in the world, with influences abroad. Italian cuisine is characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.

History of Pizza and Pasta
Much of what the world knows as Italian food has its roots in southern Italy, especially Naples and Sicily. The working class and peasants holds the claim to fame on creating pizza and pasta. Historically, pizza was not served with tomato sauce but rather rubbed with oil and served with fish. Once tomatoes were brought to Italy, pizza makers started creating red sauce pizza topped with fish or other meat. In the 1800's it wasn't uncommon to see pizza sellers on the side of the road in Naples. This tradition has continued, although the pizza is now sold in small shops and pizzerias as opposed to carts lined up in the street.

Macaroni is a term used when describing hard shaped pasta pieces. It was the peasant's food, along with pizza, because it was inexpensive to make and had a very long shelf life. Italy even exported macaroni to other countries needing cheap, long-lasting food. Some researchers have found documents that appear to mention the use of macaroni in Italy as early as the 12th century. Spaghetti is another type of dried pasta, and was historically served with fish and olive oil with garlic. Spaghetti Bolognese didn't become the norm until tomatoes were introduced to Italy.
