Italian Food in Germany
Bruschetta. Country bread sliced and topped with different toppings – the evergreen tomato-basil and an inventive mushroom-garlic. The classic Italian starter!
Pasta Carbonara. This simple Roman pasta dish derives its name from ‘carbone’ meaning coal. It was a pasta popular with the coal miners. The original recipe calls for guanciale, which is pig’s cheek, but since its not easily available, the chef has used bacon instead.
Pasta Con Pomodoro E Basilico. This is the most basic and simplest cooked pasta sauce, hence it is the benchmark of a good Italian home cook.
Margherita Pizzas. Fancy a pipping hot pizza, fresh out of the oven? One of the most loved Italian dishes. It is a food made from flat, usually round bread that is topped with usually tomato sauce and cheese and often with meat or vegetables.
Mushroom Risotto is a northern Italian rice dish cooked in a broth to a creamy consistency. The broth can be derived from meat, fish, or vegetables. Many types of risotto contain butter, wine, and onion. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy.
Tiramisu – The ‘pick-me-up’ cake. The meaning “pick me up”, “cheer me up”, “wake me up” or “lift me up”) is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. Its origins are often disputed among Italian regions such as Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, and others.
Panna Cotta With Raspberry Coulis. End your meals, the Italian way! A dessert is made with gelatine, cream and milk. Chilled and served with whole raspberries and raspberry coulis. Panna Cotta, in Italian, means ‘cooked cream.’
