‘Italian food is the best food in the world’ is a phrase I hear often, spoken – of course – by Italians.
It is true that Italian food is loved universally. A new pasta restaurant or pizzeria seems to open every week. Have you ever met anyone that didn’t like pasta, pizza, gelato?
What is it exactly about this cuisine which makes it so endlessly appealing?
A certain amount of it is the pride and the passion the Italians have for their food which is contagious. Regardless of its indisputable and dependable deliciousness, how can you fail to fall for something which other people love so passionately, unless you are completely heartless?
