Thread: Code of Italian cooking

    Default Code of Italian cooking

    I made a list of some Italian cooking guidelines I've come across, from most
    important to least important. Am I missing anything?

    Never, ever, burn the garlic (most important)
    No cheese on fish
    Don't brake the spaghetti
    Use water to seal raviolis, not egg wash
    Pizza is not a snack. Save pizza for dinner
    Butter is for bread. Oil is for everything else. (least important)

    But if you don't, you'll have run-away spaghetti, especially on a down
    hill.

    I guess that's one way of looking at it.

    You can break that last rule with good olive oil. A little on a crusty
    piece of bread is great!

    English isn't ****ed up, it's just a language that borrows from German,
    Latin, French, and increasingly Spanish.

    That's true. At least we're not like the French, who obliterated all
    dialects of their language back in the 1800's.

    I agree. But many Italians would disagree with you.

    Bread in Italy is eaten more in the north. Olive oil is eaten more in the
    south.

    Everyone's in the mob though.

    Nonsense. Pizza is good, anytime. Breakfast, lunch, supper, late
    night snack, picnic, ballgame, rock concert, opera?, movie show, road
    trip, on a train, white water rafting, riding a motorcycle, fishing....

    I can't think of a single moment when a pizza is unwelcome.

    everyone in Italy eats and uses olive oil. a lot. But they do use butter
    and cream
    more in cooking in the north, too.

    What did you really mean to say? According to what you wrote, in the
    south they would make a sandwich with two pieces of olive oil instead
    of bread?

    Or was butter supposed to be in the first part of the sentence?

    Don't break it either.

    > Use water to seal raviolis, not egg wash


    New (old really) rule- ravioli is already plural. Lose any desire to add
    an "s" to the word if you want people to think you know what you're
    talking about.

    > Pizza is not a snack. Save pizza for dinner

    Northern Italians use butter (since they have more cows) whereas
    southern Italians used more oil since olives were more in abundance.

    Then there was my grandmother's rule of "no drinking of milk while
    eating pomodoro sauce!"

    There are thirty people coming to our dinner party. I've made ravioli.
    It looks like each person gets a raviolo as an appetizer.

    If any of them is an Italian and you give him ONE raveur, I hope he can
    contain his laughter and/or his anger.

    Do you really believe that? Bread is eaten by everybody even more
    than pasta. My neighbor has an afternoon snack everyday (from lunch
    at 1 to supper at 8 is a long time) of a slice of bread with oil on
    it. She would never eat that at a meal, however.
