There are certain types of food out there today that bring out the types of salivating responses restaurant owners would love to hear from their patrons. There is elegant French cuisine. This is considered elegant because of the way dishes are cooked. This has been added to UNESCO's list of the world's intangible cultural heritages. There is American cuisine, which is a mix of different styles of cooking from all over the world. Other types of food known all over are Italian cuisine and products. Italian ingredients and cooking have now made its mark in virtually every part of the world.

Italian cuisine is famous all over the planet. This is a fact. Go to any major city in the world and most probably you will find a restaurant serving Italian food. Kitchens in households all over the world are known to serve food every now and then. Based on an article in Il Giornale, Italian food exports have risen greatly in spite of global economic crises. A passage reads, "The British drink our beer, grappa is overtaking vodka in Russia, spumante is closing in on champagne." Exports of food products have risen too. For instance, wine exports to China have doubled at 108 percent, while in India it is at 65 percent. The world just can't seem to get enough of food exports. They want Italian food served at their tables.

With that in mind, the quality of Italian food products is another important factor as to why there has been a constant surge in their export. Food products from Italy are just that good. Ask Coldiretti, which is the most important Italian agricultural organization. It represents 54 percent of all Italian farmers. As per Sergio Marini, current President of Coldiretti, Italian food exports in the first quarter of the year 2011 rose to 11 percent, more than any other Italian export.

There are many reasons why Italian ingredients and cuisine are loved throughout the world apart from their quality. Italian cuisine is characterized for its simplicity, with the food relying more on "the quality of ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation," as per celebrity chef Mario Batali's book, "Simple Italian Food: Recipes from My Two Villages." In contrast to French cuisine, which relies heavily on refined and oftentimes complicated cooking methods, Italian cuisine is simple, with many of the best recipes being created and handed down by grandmothers instead of professional chefs. This is another reason why Italian cuisine has fitted in so snugly in the kitchens of homes around the world - because much of Italian cuisine was created in ordinary kitchens. Now, eating Italian cuisine is simple. All you need to do is get some good ingredients from a grocery. Then, prepare the food by using an Italian recipe; simple, yet delicious.

The future of Italian cuisine looks bright. Exports of Italian food products continue. Homes around the world clamor for more of Italian cuisine in their kitchens. Italian suppliers are more than happy to oblige.
