  2. 2. « Il cibo da strada è costituito da quegli alimenti, incluse le bevande, già pronti per il consumo, che sono preparati o venduti soprattutto in strada o in altri luoghi pubblici, come mercatini o fiere, anche da commercianti ambulanti, spesso su un banchetto provvisorio, da furgoni, o da carretti ambulanti. » cibo da strada / street food
  3. 3. LA CUCINA DI STRADA In tutto il pianeta, ma soprattutto nel sud, i cibi di strada fanno parte delle tradizioni della cultura popolare e delle caratteristiche dei diversi paesi. Il cibo di strada consiste in alimenti o bevande pronti al consumo, venduti in una strada od un qualsiasi luogo pubblico, spesso in bancarelle. Secondo uno studio del 2007 dalla Food and Agriculture Organization, 2,5 miliardi di persone mangiano street food ogni giorno. Esso è solitamente più veloce ed economico rispetto ad un pasto a ristorante, e questo è uno dei motivi principali del suo sempre più vasto successo. Storicamente, in luoghi come l’antica Roma, il cibo di strada era diffuso perché i poveri delle città non avevano cucine nelle loro case.
