The italian dinner
A small dictionary for meal culture
A traditional Italian meal is never rushed. It lasts for many hours and consists of many smaller dishes, which are enjoyed together with loved ones.
The meal in Italy has five parts that all fulfill a function and are a whole, so the meal consists of at least four dishes, often more.
Antipasti: The start of the meal usually consists of something cold-cut or marinated, a wonderful warm-up for the stomach before all the evening's dishes.
Primo-piatto: First hot, or real, course of the meal. This is where the pasta and risotto dishes (the carbohydrates) come in. However, these are not traditionally served as a main course, but have the same quantity and function as potatoes in Sweden. The pasta is thus not a "Vasalopp portion" but a mid-course
Secondo-piatto: Second hot course in the meal. This is where meat, fish and poultry dishes (the proteins) come in. This is also a mid-course meal, without heavy side dishes.
Formaggi: The cheese is a natural rounding off of a long delicious meal as the basic cheese helps the body with the acids from the food, good for the stomach and good for the teeth.
Dolci: The sweet is just like for all of us, a piece of the goodness of life. There are many classics such as tiramisù, Panna-cotta, Semifreddo, Gelato, etc. Choose and enjoy, the good things of life!
