On the whole, Italy is a small country. In order to add a bit of perspective, consider this: The whole of Italy is actually less than half the size of the state of Texas in the United States.
However, as small as it may be on a geographic scale, Italy is a country with a long, respected, and resilient history. Between 476 AD (the fall of the Roman Empire) and 1861 (the year it was finally unified as one), Italy was made up of independent regions, republics, and city states that were constantly under threat of invasion by neighbors as well as intruders from other foreign lands.
The fact that much of the history of early Italy was wrought with the mistrust of those who would try to invade and encroach on their ways of life, coupled with the fact that the sharing of culinary traditions and ideas is a recent development, helps to explain how Italy has managed to maintain a varied cuisine from region to region even to this day.
There are twenty regions that make up Italy. Each region is unique in characteristics and cuisine. Every village or town in each of these regions offer dishes that may seem the same on the surface, but are executed with the unique qualities of the region itself.
Just as each town or village takes pride in putting a unique spin on common dishes, they also have their own specialty dishes of which they are extremely proud.
The local culinary recipes, whether they be common or specialty dishes, are shaped by the geographic and historical differences that encompass each region. It is no wonder, then, that a land as geologically diverse – mountainous, coastal, hilly, and flat depending on where you stand – would provide the world with some of the richest and most influential cuisine.
For a people that pass down traditions from generation to generation, these culinary traditions are no different in that they help to define the identity of the people, the region, and the very country of Italy itself.
In this cookbook, you will find a total of sixty recipes, three from each of the twenty regions that make up Italy.
Please enjoy the recipes in this book, and take the time to discover the traditions from each region of Italy in your own kitchen!
