A brief guide to the most important recipes of the italian cuisine
Italian Cuisine

The italian cuisine is a very important element of the italian lifestyle, in this site you will find recipes with a detailed description, images and all the information you need to cook the listed ones at your home.
The standard italian meal is built on 4 different phases with this rigorous order:

  • Antipasti: a light course to start the meal
  • Primo: the first course (often made with the most famous italian ingredient, pasta)
  • Secondo: the second course (meat or fish)
  • Dessert: fruits, cakes and so on

There is an exception to this order with the Piatto unico (unique course) that can replace the first or second course (for example the pizza).

Normally italian people don't eat every day all these courses: during the working days we choose only one or two ones (for example antipasti and a first plate) because there isn't the time for a complete dinner, but in special events the list described is completely followed.

Have a good dinner :-)
