Food and Italy go hand-in-hand (or hand-to-mouth). Italy introduced ice cream to the world (via the Chinese), along with coffee and fruit pies. Bartolomeo Sicci penned the first Italian cookbook in 1474.
Parmesan cheese originated near Parma, Italy. The popular slow food movement began in Italy in 1986 by Carlo Petrini and has since spread worldwide in an attempt to preserve traditional and regional cuisine.
