Italy food and drink guide
Italy’s cuisine is world-famous – and for good reason. This is a nation that’s proud of its culinary heritage; the best wines are strictly quality controlled, age-old recipes are awarded special status and traditions are faithfully passed down from generation to generation. Perfect pasta, golden olive oil, crumbly cheese and hearty bread, all washed down with a glass of local wine. It’s the best way to say salute to la vita bella.
Italian food and drink is as diverse as the nation’s landscape. The cuisine on offer in the cliff-side comunes of the Amalfi Coast reflects its position between Salerno and Naples, while fare from the heights of the Dolomites hints at its Austro-Hungarian history. The cities are distinct, too; Venice’s fly-by bacaro bites and Rome’s pizza-by-the-slice suit a population always on the move. The culinary landscape of rugged tearaways Sicily and Sardinia is different from anything you’ll find on the mainland. Every Italian region boasts its own unique flavours worth exploring.
