We are going to share today is what national day? The International Day of Italian Cuisine was proclaimed by the Itches. What is it about? Simply from a group of Italian chefs specializing in Italian cuisine but working out of Italy.
International Day of Italian Cuisine January 17
Worldwide known, not always respected
When we speak of Italian cuisine, the pizzas, pasta and other scallops of Milan appear immediately before our eyes. That said, Italian cuisine can be known worldwide, but it is equally universally ignored by cooks who do not always respect it as it should. By globalizing, it has lost much of its authenticity and this day wants to attract the attention of consumers on the “real” Italian traditional cooking and its original products.
The choice of January 17

As this date is also to be the first day of the carnival, one can easily imagine the great traditional meals that it occasions. Sant’Antonio is celebrated everywhere in Italy and the Italian cooks do their utmost to ensure that this tradition remains alive.
