Cooking Styles & Terms

This listing covers a broad category, that includes not only basic ways that food is prepared from boiled to carpaccio, but also some of the classical styles of Italian cuisine. Many regional ones, such as alla milanese ('in the Milan style') have numerous meanings, while others, such as all' amatriciana refers to one dish so precisely that it can stand on its own.
