The world is getting smaller all the time.

After all, as technology improves, it’s easier and easier to travel all over the world, and even if you can’t get a plane ticket, you can communicate across vast distances in milliseconds, thanks to the internet.

One of the best things about globalization is that it introduces us to new things all the time, from music to fashion to recipes! Few Americans had heard of sushi until the ’80s, but now it’s pretty much everywhere!

But there are a plenty of authentic global dishes that haven’t gained as much of a following here in the States yet.

Consider Italian food. It’s so beloved here that just about everyone has a favorite pasta recipe — like this delicious old-fashioned gnocchi — but there are quite a few Italian dishes that lots of people still don’t know about.

Perhaps one of the most underrated is squid ink pasta, a delicious and decadent treat that has its roots in the island cuisine of Sicily.

While squid ink might sound like a seasoning that would only appeal to an adventurous eater, just listen to this Italian man talk about the intricacies of the dish. He made a convert out of me!
