It’s hard to imagine how terrible life would be without Italian food. There truly is nothing that compares to it and it isn’t just Italians who feel this way. According to an international YouGov study, Italian food is the most desired in the world.
The study asked 25,000 people across 24 countries which of 34 national cuisines they liked and did not like. The study concluded that pizza and pasta were the most highly preferred foods! Although it was Italians who most frequently expressed that Italian food was their favorite, other countries did as well. 99% of Italians said Italian food was their favorite but so did 94% of Spanish people and 92% of French people! You can view the data below.
So, the next time you think of how proud you are to be Italian, take a second to appreciate the fact that you’re able to eat the most popular cuisine and even better… it’s homemade!
