Italian Cuisine
3 Italian-CuisineItalian cooks depend mainly on the quality of ingredients rather than complicated and detailed preparation. Authentic Italian cuisine relies heavily on fresh produce. Vegetables are traditionally chopped and added to pasta dishes, bakes, risottos, soups and salads. Fresh (and dried) fruit such as grapes, oranges, berries, figs, plums, cherries and apples are often served as desserts and snacks.
Meat is eaten in moderation and varieties of fish, including shrimp, crab, mussels, sardines, salmon, sardines and tuna, are a traditional staple in most parts of the country. Chicken is also eaten regularly in Italy, but in modest amounts.
Lentils, beans and peas are popular throughout Italy. Almonds, pine nuts and walnuts are used for eating as snacks or in cooking. Cheese is an old time favorite used in pasta dishes or to top pizza. Dried and fresh pasta is commonly used in Italy. Dried pasta is more commonly used in Southern Italy compared to the northern parts of the country. The diverse varieties of pasta include linguine, penne, lasagne, spaghetti, maccheroni and fusilli.
A typical Italian breakfast consists of bread or rolls, served with butter and jam. However, muesli and yogurt are also becoming popular. Lunch is usually eaten between 12.00 p.m. and 2.00 p.m. and consists mainly of cold cuts, cheese, olives and small sandwiches, followed by pasta, ravioli or soup. The main course is typically fish or meat. Most Italians prefer lighter meals at dinner-time, such as salad, risotto or soup.
