There are some interesting facts that you may not know about Italian food.
Read up before you fill up—and maybe surprise your waiter with your newfound knowledge, too.
- Bread Is a Mop: You usually clean the remnants of your plate with your spoon, but there’s a reason Italian restaurants serve such a generous portion of bread with your meal. In addition to being a fantastic appetizer, it’s also commonly used to mop up all the sauce that’s left over when you’re done savoring your entrée. Feel free to use that delicious bread to soak up the remainder of the marinara left behind.
- Alfredo Does Not Exist: Fettucine alfredo is a wonderfully decadent pasta that may exist in your local American restaurant, but you wouldn’t have much luck if you requested it in Italy. That’s because alfredo sauce isn’t common in the country—it is more of a westernized addition to an already popular dish that consists of butter noodles topped with grated parmesan cheese.
- Italians Don’t Do Breakfast: Italians enjoy their morning coffee and a lovely pastry on the side, but they aren’t partial to heaping plates of bacon and pancakes. The largest Italian dishes are served during lunch and dinner, both of which may include anything from pizza and pasta to seafood.
