In Italy food is traditionally connected with culture, history and lifestyle, as the different types of climate have enabled the development of different types of quality food products. You already know how Italians adore everything that is related to quality eating and quality drinking. No surprise, Italy is the European country with the greatest number of certified PDO (Protected Denomination of origin), PGI (Protected Geographic Indication) and TFP (Italian Traditional Food Products) food and wines products.
Cooking is considered an art in the “Castelli Romani” and eating a rite. It is a tradition on Sundays for people living in Rome to go to eat at Castelli Romani area (mangiare ai castelli). The typical “castelli” restaurateur believes it’s essential to prepare carefully the soul for eating and forbids looking at the clock!
