Italian cuisine, ti amo.

So far, I have yet to meet someone who doesn't appreciate Italian food. No matter what your dietary restrictions are, Italian cuisine has something for pretty much everyone. Oh, it also doesn't hurt that Italian food is packed with ingredients that are known aphrodisiacs.

Italian cuisine is special in that the ingredients are fresh, the meals are warm, and the atmosphere in which it's eaten is meant to be enjoyed with loved ones. Mealtimes in Italy are nothing short of sacred, their dinners can last for hours. And why shouldn't they? When you're eating delicious food with your favorite people it's only natural to want the occasion to last as long as possible. From antipasto all the way to dessert, each dish is meant to be shared and savored—often with a full-bodied glass of red wine. With such a robust way of cooking, it's no surprise that palates all over the world appreciate a long sit-down in an Italian bistro. And this, my friends, is how true love should feel.
