Great Italian delights

About Thomas

I write because I can type. I can type because I have a keyboard.

I am a new age Australian resident that is experiencing this new continent with a fresh set of eyes. 

I write on a wide range of topics. Well, I write on food. There you have it, I write on a wide range of food as well. 

The integrity that is inherent in Italian food values is becoming important in a world of take away food chains and eating on the run.

Italian food represents an ideal way to eat. A ‘Mediterranean diet’ believed to have the right balance of a little meat, good fat in extra virgin olive oil and a lot of seafood, vegetables, grains and pulses, all washed down with wine.

As our society becomes faster and less authentic, the integrity that is inherent in Italian food values is becoming important in a world of take away food chains and eating on the run.

Fast-food chains are less prevalent in Italy. France has three times as many McDonalds outlets as Italy. Australia, with a third of the population of Italy, has twice as many. Traditionally Italians have had a large variety of regional fast food that is tasty, healthy and inexpensive.

There’s little doubt the world is in love with Italian food. Many of its icons like pasta, pizza and gelato have crossed borders and now belong to the world. Italian products such as balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, parmesan, pasta, passata and many others line both supermarket and specialist food store shelves. YsEpicure is no exception, making many Italian products available to you online.
