Are you a foodie who believes they know all there is know about Italian food? Chances are, you don’t know everything (even Italian restaurants Miami). Here are three facts that most people have no clue about.
Throwing pasta on the wall and having it stick is one of the largest Italian food myths ever. This does not indicate the pasta is done – it would actually be overdone if it is actually starchy enough to stick to a wall.
Alfredo sauce is not Italian at all. This is an invention that is probably more American than anything else. If you go to Italy and you ask for this, they will probably look at you as if you had two heads.
Pepperoni pizza is not an Italian treat either (someone working in Brickell Italian Restaurant told me so). If you head to Italy in the hopes of scoring an authentic pizza, asking for pepperoni on it will get you some strange stares as well. This is not something that is generally offered in Italy.
This has probably changed the way you think about Italian food, but now you have some interesting facts to share the next time you are dining with friends and you run out of things to talk about.
