Cuisine

When ever it is possible, meals are eaten in campagnia (in the company of someone). The word campania comes from two Italian words con (with) and pane (bread), implying breaking of the bread with friends.

A meal in the company of other people is much more than breaking bread. A meal starts with antipasto (appetizer), which is usually 5 dishes, then there is the first dish (primo) with a selection of various pasta or rice dishes; after that there is naturally secondo which usually consists of meat or fish with added vegetables (cotorno); then there comes cheese (formaggio) and in the end dessert (dolce) and coffee (espresso).
