Hello, my name is Maura, and today I am going to show you how to make shrimp scampi. This is my grandmother’s recipe, and everything my grandmother makes is great, but before I do I will tell you a little about Italian food.
Many non-Italians identify Italian cooking with a few of its popular dishes, like pizza and spaghetti. People often think that Italian cooking is all pretty much alike.
However, those who travel through Italy notice differences in eating habits between cities, even those only a few miles apart.
During medieval times, the absence of a powerful central authority allowed the creation of many fiercely independent cities
