As George Miller said, “The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you’re hungry again.”
With an estimated 120 million people around the world of Italian ancestry, it’s no wonder that Italian food is a major player in world cuisine.
Outside of Italy, the largest concentration of Italians are in Brazil, Argentina, the United States, Canada, and Australia.
It’s only natural that wherever Italians have settled they’ve proudly shared their rich food traditions with those around them; making the most of local ingredients as well as getting inspiration from the cooking techniques used in their new adopted homelands.
