One of the best things that I’ve discovered about Italy is the “aperitivo.” It’s such a civilised way to spend some time with your friends, and experience some of the Italian ‘la dolce vita.’
Coffee is so ingrained in Italian culture that the idea of not drinking it is as foreign as the idea of having a spaghetti bolognese.
As with everything food and drink related, the Italians do not like to over-complicate things. That being said, here are the commandments of ordering coffee in Italy.
As you will have read in my last post, Italians treat food as a religion, and there are very definite ways how dishes should be prepared. Another thing that annoys Italians is when a dish is claimed as “Italian” by someone, even by “Italian restaurants” abroad, with dishes that have never graced an Italian dining table.
So, here are ten dishes which are definitely not Italian, and which you should never try to order in Italy.
If you ask what the world’s favourite Italian dish is, a large amount will say spaghetti bolognese. The problem is that it doesn’t exist in Italy!
