You might have been one of those walking into a Italian restaurant and wondering what you should order. Well, here Distrita got a nice guide that gives the five most interesting dishes from Italia. Please read on…
Italian food Introduction
When you visit Rome, you will be introduced to Italian pizza and pasta. The restaurants are on almost every corner of Rome, but when you return home you feel the hunger again for Italian food. Here Distrita gives you a nice but important Italian food guide that might give you hunger for it.
Tortellini in Bordo
It comes stuffed with beef, pork and some parma ham. However, this dish cannot work well without the broth. You may have to force yourself to stop from eating this at one point of time to make way for other food items into your stomach.
Fregola con Bottarga
This one is truly an eye-catcher that can leave you tongue-tied. Bottarga is basically the dried and cured Mediterranean fish roe whereas Fregola is a pasta type that originated in the islands of Sardinia. Fregola is similar to couscous as Sardinia is located close to Africa. This culinary delight is rich in various kinds of seafood comprising prawns, scallops and mussels carrying a subtle flavour sans strong aromatic seasonings.
Pancetta Funghi Caprino e Scalogno
The best thing about its pizza is that its wood-fired oven cooked crust is crispy, yet the inside remains unburnt and fluffy. A difficult feat to achieve for many pizzerias. Though, it remains under-seasoned, the pungent-smelling goat cheese and pancetta is of some help. And, the goat cheese is a bit overpowering. This food item is cooked so well that it can be eaten even without toppings.
Funghi Scamorza e Tartufo
When the table is laid down, this dish is among the most discussed about among your meal partners. This is not just a sprinkle of truffles but a serving of fresh, shaved truffles. It carries a slightly earthy flavour dominated by cheese.
Involtino di Melanzane all’Ortolana
It is among those basic culinary delights with beautiful presentation in disguise. It has balanced and light flavours. It has ricotta stuffed eggplants blending well with peppery artichoke and hot marinated peppers. Although, the use of exotic ingredients works in this context, it is the eggplant that may catch your interest. The ricotta is made so pleasantly rich yet subtle that the dish becomes interesting altogether.
