Italian_Food as we know it today had its roots anchored in the Roman Empire, YES, ABOUT 2000 YEARS AGO!!!

Since then, Italian recipes have been improved with the influence of neighbouring cultures through the centuries (as it was the case with the Ancient Greeks, and the Arabs in the South) as well as with the contribution of Marco Polo, Cristoforo Colombo and other explorers with their trips around the globe searching for new products and treasures, as The Delizia!: The Epic History of the Italians and Their Food explains.

It wasn’t until the fall of the Roman Empire that each of the Italian regions developed its own cuisine. The same dishes cooked all over the country acquired uniqueness in each region due to the wealth of local produce and by a particular cooking method or “know how”, resulting in a very diverse offer at the table.
