chocolate chip ice cream
A firm, sharp buffalo or cow's
milk cheese, aged 3 months,
or longer if intended for grating.
Originally from Campania, this
ancient cheese is now
produced throughout southern
Italy. The cheese's name may
derive from its being dried in
tandem on either side of a
pole, as if on horseback.
Others believe the name dates
back to when the cheese was
made from mare's milk.
"Before the meal"
Antipasti have tremendous range
and regional variety, from cold
vegetables dressed in olive oil,
slices of cheese, prosciutto, and
other meats to hot foods like fried
vegetables and fish. When
several of these are assembled,
it is called antipasto misto.
A large antipasto may consist of
plates of olives, prosciutto,
salami, eggs, salds, pickled
onions, stuffed tomatoes and
peppers, sweet and hot peppers,
beans, vitello tonnato, cold fish,
marinated calamari, anchovies,
sardines, frittata, and other
dishes. In Sicily appetizers are
called grape 'u pitittu (mouth
A Roman pasta preparation usually
made with linguine sauced with a
raw egg that is cooked by the heat
of the pasta itself. Then it is tossed
with pancetta or guanciale, pecorino
or Parmesan cheese, and a lot of
black pepper. The origin of the
name has never been confirmed.
Some people believe that it was a
dish created by the coal miners of
the mountains between Abruzzo
and Lazio. The name may simply
derive from the look of the cooked
bits of pancetta in the preparation.
"In the style of Capri"
Caprese sauce is usually made
with lightly cooked tomatoes,
basil, olive oil, and mozzarella.
Insalata alla caprese is a salad
of tomatoes, bail, and
