In addition to the food, the fork is another utensil incorporated into Italian culture because of the Renaissance. Suzanne Von Drachenfels made it clear that it was originally brought into Italy in the eleventh century as part of a dowry for a Venetian magistrate. However, as she mentioned, the fork wasn’t commonly used until the late 16th century when upper-class Italians became interested in it for hygienic reasons. In 1611, Thomas Coryate published Coryat 's Crudities, a narrative describing his travels throughout Europe, which described the use of a fork in Italy. In it, as quoted by Von Drachenfels, the narrative states, “I observed a custom in all those Italian Cities and Towns through which I passed that is not used in any other country that I saw in my travels [...] The Italian, and also most strangers that are cormorant in Italy, does always at their meals, use a little fork [...] The reason of this their curiosity is because the Italian cannot endure by any means to have his dish touched by fingers
Meals were prepared carefully to be aesthetically pleasing and tasty. Soups were a luxury as they were very expensive due to the many spices used to add color and flavor. Food was prepared over an open fire, with pots and pans similar to the ones we use now. An interesting fact about the renaissance is that forks were created during this time. Although they were available to peasants, most refused to use them because they thought represented the devil due to it looking similar to the devils Trident.
In Rome, much like in other areas of the world, there were specific times of day where people would dedicate themselves to eating. The times of day were similar to what is seen now in America, with a meal taking hold in the morning, midday, and evening. Though the meals evolved and changed as the empire itself did, one can look at the different meals and be able to make connections between them and those of today’s importance. Commonly in Rome the first acknowledgeable meal would be called ientaculum. It was not extraordinary and some citizens of the empire forwent it entirely.
Italian cuisine is relatively simple, using only four to eight ingredients per dish. Chefs stress the quality of each ingredient over the elaborate preparation of a dish. The main ingredients of Italian cuisine include pasta, wine, cheese, various
During the Elizabethan Era food varied according to how wealthy or poor you were. The poor had access to foods like expensive meats, but they usually couldn’t afford them. If the poor did get high class foods, they would usually sell it to the wealthy so they could make money. They would use this money to pay for things like rent and taxes. Although the lower class didn’t get to eat pleasantries very often, they were satisfied with the foods they had.

Peacock Plume states “Indeed, Austria is the actual birthplace of France's most famous breakfast pastry...Following the Ottoman defeat, according to some accounts, Austrian bakers wanted to celebrate their victory by creating a pastry that would symbolize the crescent moon that appears on the Turkish flag. The kipferl — the German word for "crescent" — became that symbol. For Austrians, eating a kipferl was a culinary re-enactment of victory over the Turks — eating their enemy.” (Leong) France isn’t even the original birthplace of the
During the Elizabethan Era, eating meat was a sign of wealth and power. During the middle ages, water pollution was bad, so citizens would only drink Ale and Wine, based on their social status. Food was mostly bought at fairs, and from small markets. People in this period also ate convenience foods, or something along the line of a snack. The poor ate mostly bread and cheese, as their convenience food, while the rich ate pastries and cakes.
We are going to narrate the impact of the Carosello style advertisement that renovated commercials within Italy. In 1954, when television made its debut it only had one list channel, which was controlled by the national state-regulated corporation RAI. In February 1957, the Carosello advertisements began debuting in Italian television. The show was broadcast between the news and evening programming, consisted of four shots that lasted approximately two and quarter minutes with the inclusion of a thirty second period dedicated to publicity. Carosello had a strict format of rules that lead to an intensive production of commercials such as: 1.
Meanwhile, the Dutch had introduced corn, potatoes and sweet potatoes to Japan. In the sixteenth-century, Japanese began to adapt to foods that were introduced by the Portuguese which followed by the Dutch later and the foods later became cultural symbols of Japan (Stajcic, 2013). For example, fried foods such as tempura are different from the usual Japanese food where it excluded meat and dairy products in their cooking but involve the usage of oil in food preparation. However, tempura was unexpectedly well accepted by Japanese people at that time and has evolved into what it is today. At late twentieth century, most of the Western foods, such as bread, coffee and ice cream had become famous in Japan (Food in Every Country, n.d.).
