The Italian cuisine is a cultural heritage of Italy. Through its scents and flavors everyone can get to know a thousand and a thousand shades of colors that make up Italy.
The italian recipes are derived from Italian regional cuisines, sometimes even municipal, which have suffered many invasions and influences from other countries such as France, Spain and the Austrian Empire. These influences have helped to increase the wealth of recipes from our kitchen.

Italian cuisine is based on Mediterranean recipes, ingredients like fish, vegetables and cereals.
But Italian cuisine is not just Mediterranean cuisine, is also made of recipes from the Alps, often created by minorities of these areas.
The wealth of ingredients, from fish to meat. The variety of vegetables and flavorings that the merchants of Venice, but not only, did pass on our territory, have allowed the Italian chefs to create unique flavors and scents.
Throughout history the genius of Italian cooks have been able to take advantage of the ingredients of the new world making them the protagonists of their recipes and making them a symbol of Italy.
