if you eat too much mint, doesn't it give you, uh, bowel issues?

Thin Mints are delicious cookies that are brilliant and have never given me bowel issues :P

Glad it's not just me! I've never had the shits after too much mint, though. That's what coffee is for.

It's worth bearing in mind if you ever have a desire to have the shits, I guess.

Spaghetti hoops omg I loved them. Used to have them all the time at my cousins with toast in the mornings. My fav Heinz thing in a tin is ravioli and then beans obv.

My granny made scotch broth the other night, not had soup for ages it was sooo nice. Had a few tatties with it too, such an old fashioned meal :P

I've been on a crusade to start stocking up on interesting recipies and ingredients. I've got into the habit of eating more or less the same seven meals every weak, and while they're all tasty and home made and prepared by my own hands, I'm getting a little bored. Found some great stuff with loads of spices and herbs - jerk chicken, cocnut curries, mixed-meat meatballs. Just some extra variation. Food should be exciting.

I just wondered about this in my status update a few minutes ago (as of the time of writing), but anybody else wonder just how really Italian 'Italian' food - I mean the food people call 'Italian' outside of Italy - is? If there's any Italians here, what do you think about them?

Great question.  I'm only Italian by marriage so not really!  So is it true that pizza was not invented in Italy?  Also, what's a typical dinner meal in Italy that's considered traditional?

Most of the time when I travel the first thing that come to my mind is what can I eat there that I would have a hard time finding an authentic version at home..

On the Italy topic I didn't find a pizza that I really loved. I tried really hard I did! My favourite dish was this Lobster Pasta- it was probably the best thing I ate in my life.

Actually my favourite pizza I ever ate was in Prague.. I ate it both days I was there.

That's a really good question, because not everyone knows that people are often tricked into thinking they're buying Italian food, while all they're buying is something produced somewhere else, with a label that includes our flag or its colours and an Italian sounding name, like this:

yTokbNA.jpg

Or look at the pic below, it's another "italian cheese". It says "pecorino", which is a type of cheese made with sheep milk (pecora=sheep). Now look at the animal in the tag.

And now this one: "Chianti" wine made in California. Makes sense. (Real "Chianti" is produced only in Tuscany).

Kind of like real Champagne can only be called that if it's from the Champagne region of France. Otherwise is has to be called Sparkling Wine.

I'm definitely going to be ready my labels a lot more to see where the food I like is made and imported from.

Yes! Reading labels is really important, everyone should do it. People who produce a particular product, it can be Champagne or Parmigiano, need to pass quality checks and follow specific rules, to protect their work, their unique product and their clients .

What do you mean with dinner meal? Evening meal or general meal? I think Americans mean generic meal but I'm not really sure!

Evening meal. (That's what we call dinner. :)) If we're having Italian for dinner it can be spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, (lots of pastas!) or veal marsala, pizza, and a host of other options. Lots have a red sauce (not a huge fan).

Can't really remember what we ate in Firenze when we were there but it was all good. Well, except for the Hangar steak that was highly recommended. Not my fav. But everything else was delicious.

Oh it's evening meal, I got it wrong, thank you! I think that the best thing about Italian food is that it's not too elaborated, you need just a few simple (and cheap!) ingredients to make a delicious meal. You're not a fan of red sauce? But that's an heresy! :P There are so many other ways you can have pasta, it can be pesto, mushrooms, olives, carbonara, "aglio, olio e peperoncino" (=garlic, olive oil and chili pepper), mussels....

Exactly. I want all those other sauces instead of red sauce! Oh, and since I'm allergic to Parmesan - no pesto. :( It's just not the same with Romano but I make it that way anyway just so I can fill my pesto taste need every now and then!

Giov - I want to come cook with you! :)
