Italian cuisine is one of the oldest and most revered in the world and some of the dishes enjoyed around the world today, such as Polenta, remain almost unchanged from when they were originally prepared for Roman soldiers about 2000 years ago.
Originally brought from the Americas by European explorers, tomatoes - pomodori or 'apples of gold' were found to thrive in Italy’s climate and quickly flourished to become a common and very vital ingredient in everyday meals cooked by Italians.
