Italian cuisine combines the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet with a wide choice of seasonal ingredients and regional flavours. It relies on fresh ingredients cooked on the spot and a combination of vegetables, grains, fruits, and tasty seafood, fish, meat and olive oil. Carbohydrates come in the form of pasta, rice (risotto), polenta, and pizza. 
 
There is no such thing as Italian cuisine with a nation-wide tradition of preparing food. In the nineteenth century, modern-day Italy was a group of separate republics. Unification, or the Risorgimento in 1861, created a single state. But people carried on cooking according to local tradition, resulting in a country with an enormously varied cuisine.
 
Traditionally, the country's wealth comes from northern Italy. It had trade routes with the rest of Europe - but most importantly, the port of Venice imported coffee, spices and sugar since the Middle Ages. Salts were used to cure meats like bresaola, salami and pancetta, and trading in luxuries afforded expensive food: liqueurs, nougat, osso bucco, truffles and nuts.
 
Central Italy is known as the country’s "breadbasket"" rolling Tuscan hills and green grazing pastures surrounding Bologna and Umbria. Spelt or farro is one of the oldest crops, with pasta, bread and beans forming the base to most meals. Tuscan beef stew, and carafes of Chianti shape day-to-day life in this agricultural part of Italy.
 
The craggy, dry and comparatively poor south of Italy owes its rich cuisine to past invasions: honey, olives and nuts from the Ancient Greeks, and citrus trees from the Byzantines. Aubergine is used as 'the poor man's meat', and buffalo milk is turned into the region's most famous export - mozzarella.
