We asked you the following question:
*When eating out, what cuisines do you usually choose?
Italian, French, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Other...
It seems that you cannot get enough of sunshine food. The research you helped with in November revealed that most of you are in love with Italian and Mediterranean cuisines.
Your taste for Italian food was three times as popular as that of the nearest, which was Indian.
Although most cuisines have a lot to offer, Italian carries such a range of dishes that it never fail to cater for all sorts of tastes.
Our own Portofino has, for the last 16 years proved very popular with diners of all ages. It is a favourite among families with both parents and children always managing to find something to their taste, from a simple Margherita Pizza or Spaghetti Carbonara to a more elaborate chicken or steak dish.
I, personally love the simplicity of Italian dishes, many of which can be labelled as "fast food" in the true meaning of the phrase. A risotto or a pasta dish takes no longer than fifteen minutes to prepare from scratch. A pizza, providing the base is ready will take less than eight minutes in a normal oven.
Here is a selection of your answers.
