There is one topic that is always present in every lesson: food! It’s inevitable, Italian language and Italian cuisine are closely related. Italian food consists of a variety of different regional dishes and various culinary traditions. In the same way, Italian language has a multitude of local dialects that are nothing like the so-called standard Italian.
Bonacci Editore probably agrees with me! Their book “Buon Appetito! Tra lingua italiana e cucina regionale” allowed me to teach Italian through regional recipes. I use the units in the book as they are or I adapt them to the needs of my students. I, myself, learned a few new regional recipes by using this book! It is fascinating to see how a recipe can grip the attention of students and be so versatile in teaching grammar and vocabulary. Definitely one of my favourite books!
