About Our Site
Italiana was formed to offer a unique reference point on italian food, drink and culture.
This website offers a comprehensive source of information about Italian, well...Italiana!
The name Italy conjures up images of dusty olive groves, rich soil, abundant harvests and big social gatherings. The best quality fresh food: prepared and shared amongst family and friends-without giving away too many of mama's secrets. Wine, beer, cheese, pasta, abundant fruit and vegetables, seafood and heavenly desserts; what more could there be to life?
Passion! Italiana is about full-throttle living-with a laid-back attitude and sociability with a healthy level of competitiveness. Are you really passionate about family, food, wine and good company? Do you want to create that sense of belonging and camaraderie; so apparent in everything Italian?
You can explore and experiment with traditional recipes, find the best wines to accompany them and celebrate life 'the Italian way' without even going there. Tips on what to buy, where to buy it and what to do with it can be found on the Italiana website, but-even more importantly-you can discover why! What is it that gives Italian families such strong bonds? Simple. They eat together.
Meals in Italy are not regarded as mere 'refuelling' necessities, they are close, intimate occasions during which nourishment of the soul is as important as a satisfied stomach!
Italiana is about a way of life, a state of mind and an attitude! If you want to try and capture the whole ambience, read on...
