Italian Cooking Recipes
Italian Cooking Recipes Are Still My Favorite!
Italian food is my favorite of any cuisine in the world, and the Italian cooking recipes I have are still my favorites of all the different dishes I make on a regular basis. They are usually simple, quick, and most important, absolutely delicious.
When I was in university, I dated an Italian girl who loved to cook, so it was pretty much a match made in heaven. She had scads of Italian cooking recipes that her family actually brought from the old country, and I was the lucky recipient of many of those dishes.
My absolute favorite was veal parmesan. That is still my favorite meal of all, and I ask for it every birthday. The only problem is that nobody I know makes it the way that I do, because I got it from my girlfriend’s Italian cooking recipes and basically had it down to a fine art.
I soon realized that I had to learn how to cook all of the meals that I was enjoying on a regular basis, because they were all so delicious, and from what I could tell, they did not look that difficult to prepare.
I had taken some culinary classes in college, and I always seemed to have a knack for making Italian food and making it well. When I met my girlfriend and started looking at her recipes, I put the skills I had picked up in the classroom to good work and started pounding out things like lasagna, baked ziti and chicken parmesan.
I loved the simplicity of the Italian cooking recipes, and when I was preparing a meal with my girlfriend, we always had so much fun. She would often tell me about the history of the foods that we were making and where they came from in Italy.
She also told me that one of my favorite Italian dishes, fettuccine alfredo, was not Italian at all, but Italian-American. As the story goes, an Italian-American chef in New York City was trying to make his pregnant wife something to eat that would not upset her stomach, and stumbled upon the dish, which has become an American favorite.
As it turned out, I never ended up having to use any of the Italian cooking recipes that I had so arduously studied and committed to memory, because, well, I married my Italian girlfriend and we have been together for more than 20 years.
We still get together at least once a week to cook, and we still have as much fun as we ever did. We do like all kinds of food, but Italian is still our favorite, and Italian cooking recipes are still the ones I enjoy the most.
