5 Tips for Authentic Italian Cooking
Use the freshest, ripest produce.
Imported San Marzanos canned tomatoes is the best, their flavor is superior to all other canned tomatoes.
Add just enough, no need to overpower the dish. Few dishes are intended to be garlicky or winey.
Most all savory dishes start with sautéd onions and or garlic, and sometimes carrots, celery or bell peppers. They are chopped small so that they basically melt when cooked —and they are rarely cooked until browned.
Don’t overcook the soffrito nor cook it at high heat. Add the salt as you go,
Northern Italy has more dairy than the South, and the geography and climate has governed Italy’s cuisine —still to this day. Butter, cream, corn, and fresh pasta are found in Northern recipes. In Central and Southern Italy is more use of olive oil, grains, chili and tomato-based dishes.
