ITALIAN CUISINE

 

Italian cuisine is well acknowledged to be one of the most popular cuisines in the world. Good food has always been essential to the Italian way of life. The essence of Italian cooking today is its simplicity. Not many ingredients are used in making a dish. For eg. Fresh fish is simply char-grilled over hot coals and served with nothing more than a splash of olive oil, lemon and freshly ground black peppers. Italian cuisine essentially has Pasta, Risotto, Cheese, Herbs.  Olive Oil, an indispensable food ingredient, is used in much of Italy. Typically, Italian menu starts with Antipasti followed by Pasta, Rice or Gnocchi, then by Fish, Meat and Vegetable served in sequence.  The first course, or Antipasti, has an array of different dishes both hot and cold like the attractive Bruschetta Casalinga and Perroni Arrostiti con Pesto. This is followed by Pasta or Risotto flavored with seasonal ingredients namely Spaghetti with Olives and Capers, Baked Seafood Spaghetti, Seafood Lasagna, Cannelloni stuffed with meat and others.  Then followed by simply-cooked meat or fish namely Baked Fish with garlic Mayonnaise, Meat balls etc. Finally, a local cheese based cake such as the irrepressible Tiramisu, Apple Cheese Cake etc. to make it a complete meal.
