One of the reasons Italy is well-known is for its delicious culinary traditions. But Pastas & Pizzas aren’t all it has to offer. While these are some of the more famous dishes, there is a plethora of more seasonal and regionally acknowledged cuisine available. Obtaining these gourmet, vintage treats, however, may necessitate venturing a little deeper into the heart of the country.

Chef Sebastian Breitinger, Professor Culinary Arts at V. M. Salgaocar Institute of International Hospitality Education (VMSIIHE), shares two of his favourite easy-to-prepare-at-home recipes.

Zucchini Cannelloni is a delicious starter one can whip up in a few minutes and is a great addition to the culinary spread for parties and get-togethers. This healthy option is a great alternative to the usual pasta-based cannelloni.  

Risotto, which is a northern Italian dish, is typically served as a main course. It is cooked along with a broth that is usually derived from meat, fish, or vegetables to a creamy texture.
