To Italians, a meal is a window into the hearts of a people and the soul of a country, Each region’s cooking is a peek into Italy’s character—whether it be the spicy peasant flavors of the south or the richer, more elaborate food of the north.”— Lorenzo Carcaterra, Taste of Travel, National Geographic Traveler, May/June 2003
