The first conversation my husband and I had was about food (of course, he was a colleague then, not husband). We discussed the best meals that we had ever eaten: he described a slow-roasted beef brisket that he ate in New York, I told him about my love for the spicy streetside seafood in Thailand. After three years and several disagreements about what to order, we decided to plan our first international vacation together. I love history, he loves sports. I wanted to visit all the monuments and museums. He wanted to visit all the stadiums and pitches. The trip, it seemed, was doomed before it even began.
Food, they say, bridges barriers. Our love for food triumphed, and we decided to make this trip a culinary adventure. We zeroed down on Italy, home to the best comfort food in the world, and prepared an itinerary at whose heart was discovering the culinary secrets of Italy. Here's how our gastronomic adventure unfolded.
Italian Pizza Is Very Different From Indian Pizza
Pizza is more than just food, pizza is an emotion. Had a bad day at work? Sink your teeth into a cheesy pizza. Want to cheer for your favourite team? Munch on a meaty pizza while you do so. Impromptu squad meet? Order some pizza for the gang. Pizza is our go-to food for pretty much all situations. Since we were going to the home of pizza, it was obviously right at the top of our Italy food trail.
