Macaroni and cheese According to legend, macaroni were brought to Italy by Marco Polo, when he returned in 1292 to Venice from his trip to China. This hypothesis has been refuted, since it seems that the macaroni was already used in Italy, at least a century before. Macaroni are a kind of pasta made from water, flour and, sometimes, egg which usually takes the form of elongated tube. Macaroni are usually medium sized, almost longer than thick. In their preparation at home, the cheese is usually prepared like a Mornay sauce, with butter and cheese cooked in a roux. The final texture of this cheese sauce should resemble a cream.

The food that I want to write on is the “taco”. Mexicans made the first taco. It’s like an omelet; you can fill it with meat like steak, sausages… It is round but you roll it to eat. You can eat it with your hands and it’s usually accompanied with green sauce or cocktail sauce. Today it is expanded world-wide. The origin is Mexican taco.

It may have originated as a variation of another layered dessert, Zuppa Inglese. Other sources report the creation of the cake to have originated in the city of Siena. Alternatively, accounts by Carminantonio Iannaccone and Nathan Lopez (as researched and written about by The Washington Post) establish the creation of Tiramisu by him on 24 December 1969 in Via Sottotreviso while he was head chef at Treviso, near Venice. The translation of the name Italian tiramisu means "pick-meup".

RISOTTO Risotto is a class of Italian rice with an interesting history. It's healthy and can be prepared in lots of different ways. This delicious dish can be prepared with many ingredients, for example butter, wine and onion. The story of risotto began with the Arabs. They brought rice to Sicily and Spain. Italy was a perfect place to grow rice because the weather was humid. Valerious is probably the creator of risotto. In 1574 he added an ingredient called saffron to the rice.

One of Italy's most famous dishes is Risotto alla Milanese. In Po Valley, where lots of Italian rice grows, risotto usually is preferred with pasta. In Venice and Veneto, they eat risotto with eels as a traditional Christmas meal.
