I have to go with veal piccata. Of course I love all of it, pasta, raviolis, osso bucco....drool.

Don't say pizza. I'll make another thread for that, it's not "Italian" enough.

Carciofi alla romana are right up there with a warm porchetta sandwich fresh cut from a just roasted pork in an alimentaria in Arezzo - in fact I got those together.

Fried whole artichoke flower (forget what you call that)

gelato from Giolitti, any of 57 kinds

torta de mele

zuccotto

pappardelle with wild boar sauce

spaghetti with clams, anchovies, garlic, chili flakes

spaghetti with baby clam shells..

suppli al telefono

pasta e fagioli

culatello di zibello (zibella?)

parmigiano reggiano

osso buco

pizza with mozzarella, gorgonzola, walnuts

and much more...

Re: Favorite Italian Food?
Whz is pizza not Italian enough, cjhsa? Isn't Napoli in Italy?
Since at least 1490 we've got la pizza genovese. (Though I admit that la pizza napolitana is more famous. Or may be the pizza romana? Never mind.)

(you notice I didn't obey either)

That pizza with gorgonzola and walnuts was a delight in Roma. As was the pizza with wurstel (campo dei fiori) - that one was very plain but, you know, perfect.

I suppose though that Cjhsa wanted to provide room for a lot of american style pizza (and other countries' variations).

Okay. But I thought he was questiong our favourite Italian food.


Well, besides some pizza, I like cotoletta alla milanese, maccheroni con le noci, and risi e bisi best. Besides every variation of fish.

This may seem like minor point--but, what a revelation to be able to eat an artichoke whole.

Good raviolis/tortellini. I am not a fan of gnocchi - too cloying.

I once saw a short film about oregano, called Tanto Oregano, by Les Blank (Blanc). So, that's what I think of when regarding gnocchi. Too many gnocchi...
I'm fine with a few well made gnocchi (and there are many variations) but not a bowlful.

I grew oregano in CA and could never get it to be as strong as the store bought varieties. I prefer Mexican oregano.

I might prefer it too, it's Lippia, and I gather the sonoran variety is best. That's what I use now.


On Les Blank - he's the same fellow that made "Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers"..

The reason might be that "Origanum" is a native plant to Europe, the Mediterranean region and southern and central Asia.
