Limoncello is one of the most popular Italian liqueurs. The yellow drink is made in southern Italy, in sunny Sicily, the Gulf of Naples, and the Amalfi Coast — mostly because these areas offer the perfect soil and weather conditions to grow lemons.
We visited Villa Divina, a villa on the Amalfi Coast in the city of Vietri with 600 lemon trees. Villa Divina supplies lemons to Pallini, a company established in 1875 in a small village near Rome that specializes in Italian liqueurs such as Sambuca and Mistrà. Pallini Limoncello production started in the '90s, and today Pallini makes almost 1 million liters of the lemon liqueur per year. The type of lemon used for making Pallini Limoncello is the Sfusato Amalfitano, also known as Amalfi lemon.

The history of pasta can be told, in some ways, through the many pasta shapes that have been created over the years.
Macaroni. Spaghetti. Lasagne. How did we get all of these different (and delicious) shapes of pasta? On today's episode of Food History, we'll be exploring the stories of various pasta shapes. Which pasta is named after an Italian pop singer, and which is named for an unfortunate choking accident?

Breaking away from the more well-known olive oil seasoned flatbread, focaccia in Bari, Italy is a feast of flavors made with tomatoes, olives, oregano, and olive oil. We visited Panificio Fiore, a local bakery that's been churning fresh focaccia every day for over a century. The bakery is just a few steps away from the city's Basilica di San Nicola, an important destination for pilgrims all over the world. For those foodies exploring the old town on another kind of pilgrimage, a slice of focaccia here will cost only 1 euro and will for sure open the doors of heaven.
