By Anna Del Conte

Introduction
To characterize the wealth and diversity of Italian cooking, I have
chosen recipes to typify the cuisines of every zone. they range from
the wealthy darkish red meat Braised in Barolo wine, from Piedmont, to the
Sicilian Pasta with clean sardines, redolent of the clean aromas of
the Mediterranean. they're all conventional dishes, all nonetheless made in
their place of birth, even though in as many adaptations as there are
cooks. those are my models and that i wish they'll encourage you to try
them on your personal kitchen. commence by way of following the recipes precisely,
then after you have realized the best way to cook dinner all'Italiana, you could add
your personal own touch.
A note on components. the key of Italian cooking lies in
making the very best use of first class foodstuffs, with very few
added sauces or garnishes. as a result i counsel you to shop for in basic terms
the top constituents and at any time when attainable, Italian products
rather than neighborhood substitutes.
