National Italian Food Day (RECIPES)

Italian cuisine has developed through the centuries, stretching all the way back to antiquity. It is characterized as simple with many dishes only having a couple of ingredients, but with a taste that will make any mouth water. With twenty different regions, and each having its own culinary heritage, you will find that Italian heritage and food has something for everyone. In 2016, the restaurant Osteria Francescana was named worlds best restaurant, which is an honor and testimony of Italian cuisine.
