Due Ita di Vino e Una Pedata al Medico... Mangia Mangia!
Due dita di vino e una pedata al medico (two drops of wine and we can kick the doctor out the door)
We all know how Italians adore their wines (we do, too!). While in English, a somewhat old-fashioned proverb endorses apples – “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” the wiser Italians substitute that boring apple with a little bit of wine, preferably labeled DOC (in case you’re not familiar with Italian wine labeling, this stands for denominazione di origine controllata, or guarantee of origin), of course!
“FIRST WE EAT, THEN WE DO EVERYTHING ELSE.”
That is what my favorite food writer, M.F.K. Fisher, used to say.
I couldn’t agree more. Food plays such a central part in our lives.
And Italian food? Well that is the best food of all.
I have rounded up my favorite quotes about Rome, but what I really love is talking about food. Apparently, I am not the only one.
From antipasti, to pasta and pizza, Italian dishes have inspired and nourished countless fans.
Here are the best quotes about Italian food:
“EVERYTHING YOU SEE I OWE TO PASTA.”
