The Italian assimilation into the US was particularly difficult, marred by stereotypical images of unsavory people prone to criminality.  Despite these depictions, Italians focused on building their American identities.  Interestingly enough, it was through their food that Italians forced the rest of America to adjust.  It was the Italian restaurants opened by immigrants here that changed and improved America’s understanding and appreciation of Italian culture.  Once only available in their neighborhoods, Italian food has won its way into the hearts, minds and stomachs of all Americans.  Here’s to another delicious week of featuring some of the most famous food from around the country!
