It wouldn’t be prudent for me to talk about Italy as an amazing travel destination without mentioning something about the food which I must say is mouthwatering. Italy is truly the home of amazing cuisines.
I will take some time and briefly talk about 4 Italian dishes that I strongly recommend you to try out when visiting Italy.
1 Pizza Margherita
Well, you can’t talk about Italian cuisine without of course starting with pizza. It’s believed that this dish originated in Italy and it has gone to be one of the most popular dishes in the world. In Italy, Pizza is a popular main course made out of purely Italian ingredients with the main being fresh bread that is topped with basil, cheese, tomato sauce and other ingredients depending on the city it’s being made.
Lasagne is another mouthwatering Italian delicacy that many enjoy as a main course meal. The dish is expertly prepared by putting together a number of preferred vegetables and spices in Italy such as garlic, tomatoes, oregano and onions which combine to bring out a tantalizing flavor. These are then expertly combined with meat and pasta to create a delicacy to remember.
Biscotti are a popular snack in Italy that you will find in cafes or bars. It’s one of the best cookies you will ever taste as it has been perfectly married with some butter and almonds which become really flavorsome when taken together with tea, cappuccino or latte. There are a number of variations of biscotti which are popular in different cities.
The cannoli which is believed to have originated in Sicily is another popular snack in Italy. The best of it is of course homemade. In fact, it’s a go to snack that Italian mums like to prepare for the family. It’s essentially pastry dough that has been sautéed, and then rolled with cream and ricotta cheese stuffed in it. It’s truly a delicacy.
When it Italy, be sure to try out these delicacies and to get the best experience, don’t try them at a big restaurant, you’ll get the real unadulterated flavor in small local restaurants.
