The dinner table is a very important place in Italian households! Therefore there are some important rules when Italians eat dinner!
1. No Hats at the Table
This should go without saying!
2. Take it or LEAVE IT
In Italian homes, children are expected to eat what they are given with no fuss!
3. The Salad comes AFTER dinner
Salad is rich in fiber and aids in digestion when eaten after.
4. No Business Talk at the Table
5. Cheese Does NOT go on Fish
Italians believe that the strong flavor of cheese can alter the flavor of fish dishes.
6. Wait Until the Cooks Sits to Begin Eating
Do this out of respect!
7. Mostly All Meals Are Eaten with Bread
8. No phones at the table
9. Never leave SUGO left on your plate
Clean it up with your bread!
