    And what about Italian cuisine?
    Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with its roots firmly planted in antiquity. Significant changes occurred with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, now central to the cuisine but not introduced in large quantities until the 18th century. Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity, and wide range of taste profiles, making it the most popular culinary lifestyle in the world. It is characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of their ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Ingredients and dishes vary by region. Many dishes that were once regional, however, have proliferated with variations throughout the country. Cheese and wine are a major part of the cuisine, with many variations and Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) (regulated appellation) laws. Italian coffee, specifically espresso, has become a cornerstone of culture both in Italy and abroad.
