Eating Heartily in Italy
Italy is renowned for its cuisine and while you are there, you should definitely get your fill of traditional food. And odds are, it will be much different from what you usually eat here at an Italian restaurant. Here are some suggestions on what to eat while you are there:
- Pizza: This is a no-brainer for anyone who is in love with pizza. But if you want to eat the best pizza in Italy, we recommend you head to the famous city of Naples. The birthplace of pizza, no other city in the world–with the possible exceptions of New York and Chicago–takes pizza as seriously as Naples does.
- Prosciutto: Pork fans rejoice! This is dry-cured ham thinly sliced and it is quite delicious. While you can find prosciutto pretty much everywhere in the country, cities like Emilia, Parma, and Friuli are exceptionally famous for producing high quality dry-cured ham.
- Tortellini: This type of ring-shaped pasta is very popular amongst pasta eaters in the States, but is actually served differently in Emilia, its birthplace. In the city and its surrounding area, tortellini is actually served in a broth, called “tortellini in brodo.” The broth is either made from beef or chicken.
