In Italy, food is a huge part of the culture. In fact, Italy is often credited for 'teaching' the rest of Europe how to do food properly! On Sundays, Italians have a really big lunch with a number of courses. Sunday is the only day of the week when all of the courses are eaten. It's often done with extended family, and is really important to them. It's a time for catching up and eating great food in great company. Depending on the region it starts between 12pm and 1pm, and sometimes may even last until teatime! Here, for each part of the Sunday meal, are a few recipes!

Antipasto - Starter

Marinated Mozzarella Balls

Dolce - Sweet Dessert

Tiramisu

Blueberry Focaccia

Caffè

Coffee!

Ammazzacaffè

Ammazzacaffè is used to dull the after-taste and caffeine effect of the coffee. It's a small glass of liqueur of choice. Amaretto is a really popular.

Hopefully this gives you a bit of a look into an Italian feast! What do you think about the amount of food eaten? Are any of these foods something you'd try, or already have tried? What foods would you suggest as being Italian staples? (Other than pasta and pizza! :laugh:)

All this food is making me hungry now :coma:

It sounds too complicated, I'd say just eat anything at any time of day.

I struggle to get through my dessert after having 1 main, having starters and a 2nd main course would kill me off completely

My favourite Italian food are calzones, the meatball ones at Frankie and Bennys = :love: :love: :love:

Thank you for this. You have remembered me why I appreciate Italian cuisine so much. I especially like the different sorts of pasta, there is not really another nation which has so many delicious dishes for those. And there is no nation to understand how to prepared it in a tasty way.

Think about to do Italian food for the coming week.
