ITALY and ITALIAN CUISINE

Itailan cuisine is one the oldest in Europe, tracing back to ancient Greek and Roman traditions.  It is also one of the best known cuisines outside its country of origin.

Some of the important basic ingredients of Italian cuisine:

There are a great many regional differences in Italian cuisine as well as differences distinguishing Northern Italian cooking from Southern Italian cooking.  In general, rice, butter and cream are staples in the north; pasta and olive oil are staples in the south.

Between 1880 and 1920 about 25% of all immigrants to the United States were from Sicily.
