There are many key parts of most Italian food, namely being Olive Oil, Tomatoes, fresh herbs, and cheese. Many Italian foods utilize tomatoes and tomato based sauces to maximum effect. Wine is also a staple of Italian culture and cuisine.

There are many famous wines that come from Italy, including; Moscato and Pinot Grigio. Italian cuisine is also known for it’s desserts and sweets! Namely, gelato, cannoli, panna cotta, and various forms of coffee. My personal favorite being the divine cannoli, although cannolis are actually Sicilian in origin.

    Buon giorno Shane,
    I also love cannoli! They are wonderful. Whenever I see that famous scene of The Godfather III at the opera, I feel tempted to eat a bunch, without poison, of course, 🙂
    Grazie mille!
