Herbs and Spices (Erbe aromatiche e spezie)

What could be the italian cooking without the famous herbs and spices? Try to imagine a gladiator without his gladius (the famous roman short sword), or if you prefer a more romantic vision of the life, a red rose without smell... Did I give you the idea? Let's start to know the most important herbs and spices used for the italian cooking meanwhile we learn the Italian translation.

Basil (Basilico) One of the most important herb to use in the italian foods. Very aromatic, and somebody says also it can be very erotic. The leaves can be used to garnish pizzas or to prepare the famous "Basil Pesto". Use it always fresh!

Black peppercorns (Pepe nero) Hot and spicy, but be carefull, don't over do it, it can burns yourself... When you crushed used it immediately or the aroma disappears quickly.

Cinnamon (Cannella) From the tropical Asia countries, this is another one tasteful spice that sometimes you can you use it in some delicious combination of pasta and vegetables.

Chillies fresh and dried (Peperoncino fresco e secco) One of my favorite... Rich of C vitamin, help your body to get strong and favourites the blood circulation

Chives (Erba cipollina) Sweet, delicate but smells like an onion... don't eat it before a dating... unless your partner has the cold.

Mint (Menta) Ahhhh.... fresh and aromatic. Famous the Roman Mint, called in italian "Mentuccia Romana". You can use it fresh or dried... it never minds.

Nutmeg (Noce moscata) Another spice with some erotic effects... you don't need to put it too much, but when you get it you feel the difference for its delicate arom.

Oregano (Origano) This is one of the basic herb of italian cooking. You should always have some in your kitchen. With tomato sauce is sinonimous of the mediterranean flavor.

Parsley (Prezzemolo) Rich 4 times more of c vitamin than orange, contains also A provitamin, iron and it is famous for its stimulating properties... Wow! We're going to use it a lot in our italian kitchen: why don't you try to grow your own as for the basil?

Rosemary (Rosmarino) Strong, aromatic, stimulating but don't over do it or is goin to kill the other tastes.

Saffron (Zafferano) The most expansive spice in the world but we don't need to add it too much: just a pinch and you'll taste the Olimpus on the earth even if you don't live in Beverly Hills. Famous the italian Risotto allo Zafferano.

Sage (Salvia) It is very good especially for Saltimbocca alla Romana , but don't ask me now for whatelse ... I've forgot.

Thyme (Timo) Another good spice to add in the tomato sauce for pizza or pasta.
