Italian dishes are some of the most well-known and appreciated, but few are aware of the cultural history behind them. The "First Week of Italian Cuisine in the World," initiated this year by the Italian Foreign Ministry as an annual event, aims to promote not only the taste, but the history and traditions of Italian food culture."The message we want to spread is that food is not only about taste but about health," said Codispoti, who is a nutritionist as well as a chef. While he is deeply attached to the traditional Italian cuisine, he welcomes several new techniques that exalt taste and increase nutritional properties. "Deciding the menu is like creating a custom-tailored dress," Codispoti said. He chose bottarga – a delicacy of salted fish roe – as a recurring ingredient in the menu as a sign of appreciation for the Phoenician culture, which introduced the practice of drying fish to Italy.
