Epic Family Journey

The food in Italy

Happy reading everyone! I learned that Italy has a lot of very good food such as pizza, pasta, gelato and other desserts.

I love pizza! Legend has it that a guy named Raffaele created the Pizza Margherita in 1889 to honour Queen Margherita of Savoy. The Margherita Pizza is full of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and basil to represent the colors of the flag Italian. ??

Me and my brother (and Roberto) also did special cookies that adults have soaked in their wine for dessert. It was the best pasta I have ever had in my life.


In Italy, my family and I discovered real Italian gelato. There was a lot of gelato flavours like strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, kinder, penguin, black and white, mango, mint and chocolate, white chocolate, and lots other flavours that I don’t remember. I also tasted a Tartufo, it is made of gelato and a kind of brownie but even better. It’s a cold brownie with mini chocolate chips, with whipped cream and a Pirouline on top.


There are people who like ‘Little Caesars’ pizza more than Italian pizza, people who like ice cream more than gelato, people who like brownies more than the Tartufo, people who like pasta from the grocery store more than Italian pasta, but I love the true Italian cuisine!

Here’s a little song that I invented ‘pizza margherita, carbonara pasta, tartufo, and gelato.
