When it comes to food dishes and ingredients that are at once recognized and beloved the world over, the cuisines of places like Spain, Greece, and Italy have a lot to offer. In fact, they’ve been offering it for quite a long time, which explains why certain locales have become synonymous with the meals hailing from them, as well.
