Italians have few things they are proud more than food. And they are not the only ones that appreciate the mixture of typical foods of the Mediterranean diet and the desire to share the treats with family and friends. We can easily define the “Italian way of food” the way they cook, eat, love food.
Ordinary people but also Hollywood stars and politicians appreciate Made in Italy food and the way they cook, including Robert De Niro, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton (just to name a few).
But what exactly we like about the eating habits of the Italians? First of all the conviviality, followed by the values of the Mediterranean diet and by the health benefits of eating Italian.
The country, which is one of the most beautiful in the world, has managed to put together tasty, healthy food and how to eat in joy. Have you ever been in Italy on Sundays, when all the family reunites around the table, or during the Christmas lunch? If not, you’re missing a lot).
The Italian way of food is so successful both in Italy and abroad because it is not just a diet, but a real lifestyle. It is healthy and tasty and makes you feel good about yourself.
To explain the secret of such appreciation and passion for the italian style of food, we have been inspired by experts Gian Luca Rana and Gino D’Acampo and understood the following reasons behind this success.
QUALITY: because the excellence of Made in Italy products are part of the quality system to ensure total food safety;
TRADITION: Italian food is part of the story of the country and specific cities;
INNOVATION: because many companies have now a strong presence abroad;
CONVIVIALITY: the joy that only Italians have of being together at the table;
TASTING: Italian food is not only the necessary to eat for a living, but most of all is the love for flavors and fragrances.
