Food History

Pork is probably the most common meat served in Italian homes. In Italy, pigs have always been considered an important food source. In Ancient Rome, Marco Terenzio Varrone believed that these animals were given to man as a give to improve his quality of life. Compared to beef, pork is not only less expensive, but it can be used in many ways. In Italy, fresh meat is either cooked or preserved in the form of sausage and salumi. In almost every town in Italy, you will find a local type of salumi. In fact, 17 of the 20 regions in Italy have their own salumi culture and traditions. It is impossible to say who was the first person to put ground pork in an animal casing to make sausage, but we are certain that the slaves of Lucania, modern-day Basilicata, were the ones to introduced sausage to the ancient Romans.
