The atmosphere and experience are also important elements when enjoying Italian cuisine. For immigrants, it was a time to spend together and enjoy the company of others, which still stands true today. Elena Kostioukovitch, author of ‘Why Italians Love to Talk About Food’ claims that food has the unique ability to inspire joy and create harmony. She says “food is talked about in a language that is accessible to all, exciting to everyone, democratic and positive.” Food unites people in more ways than one, and Italian cuisine is a prime example of that. It brings a city like Montreal together, and fortunate enough to be able to experience it.
