We are a group of friends with a deep passion for Italian quality food. In 2015 we have embarked on our long and exciting journey through Italy in search of the best local and genuine Italian food manufacturers, with the goal of finding the most valued, artisan and delicious products.
And we have no intention of suspending this journey, ever.
Where we come from
We of the I Like Italian Food team were lucky enough to be born in Emilia-Romagna, "THE FOOD VALLEY", where food and wine strongly impact people and the landscape.
Ask any Italian where their favourite place to eat is, and their response will undoubtedly be "mamma's kitchen". But if we change the context of the question and extend it to include a wider area, the answer will most likely be Emilia-Romagna.
Our region's cuisine is one of the finest in the world. There are many reasons for this, each one tastier than the next. Just think of Emilia-Romagna's vast collection of PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) products, which are not easy to come by elsewhere.
Credit should therefore go to the region's local products. Emilia-Romagna is home to some of the culinary specialities that have led to Italy's worldwide fame: Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Parma ham, traditional balsamic vinegar from Modena and Reggio Emilia, Culatello salami, and tagliatelle and tortellini pasta. Who hasn't heard of at least one of these?
And how can we forget the vast selection of traditional wines? There's Sangiovese, Lambrusco, Gutturnio, Albana and Pignoletto, to name just a few of the most well-known.
Then there's the region's cuisine, tradition, chefs and, most importantly, recipes for everyday cooking and festivities. This is where mastery and brilliance collide, especially the skill of transforming fine, local products into something truly unique.
Emilia-Romagna is the land of flavours and traditions, where the word 'cuisine' means 'culture' above all else: a culture to discover, share and, most of all, savour.
Why I Like Italian Food?
" Our dream is to make the products of the Italian food and wine tradition is known worldwide! "
So we opened I Like Italian Food: an online space to make our Italy known through food and wine, with the possibility of getting unique and only Made in Italy products into homes all over Europe.
We take care of the online sales process to give small producers who would not otherwise have the resources to sell their products with an e-shop the chance to have a virtual showcase to the world.
