Naples is internationally famous for its cuisine and wine; it draws culinary influences from the numerous cultures which have inhabited it over the course of its history, including the Greeks, Spanish and French. Neapolitan cuisine emerged as a distinct form in the 18th century.
The ingredients are typically rich in taste, while remaining low cost. Naples is traditionally credited as the home of pizza. This originated as a meal of the poor, but under Ferdinand IV it became popular among the upper classes: famously, the Margherita pizza was named after Queen Margherita after a visit to the city, in 1870.
Cooked traditionally in a wood-burning oven, the ingredients of Neapolitan pizza have been strictly regulated by law since 2004, and must include wheat flour type "00" with the addition of flour type "0" yeast, natural mineral water, peeled tomatoes or fresh cherry tomatoes, salt and extra virgin olive oil. Spaghetti is also associated with the city and is commonly eaten with the sauce ragù: a popular Neapolitan folkloristic symbol is the comic figure Pulcinella eating a plate of spaghetti. And in one of ours itineraries, we'll visit to Acerra, its famous museum, the "Pulcinella's Museum".
Parmigiana di melanzane, mozzarella, spaghetti alle vongole and casatiello, are among the dishes popular in the city.
