Trivia

Did you know that spaghetti sauce that is regarded as the quintessential Italian sauce, assumed dating back to the 13th century, was not a part of the Italian cuisine until the late 1800s? This was due to the fact that Europeans did not welcome tomatoes when they were first introduced to them by Spanish traders.
