The king of hams’ ranking is stable at the 31st place. Italy is present also with Lasagna’s 23rd place and Pizza Napoletana’s gets on the podium at second place.

The famous CNN Traveller’s ranking of the “World’s best foods” has just been updated confirming Prosciutto di Parma stable at the 31st place. Italy conquers another two places in the ranking with Lasagna’s 23rd place and Pizza Napoletana ranks second on the podium.

The presence of Prosciutto di Parma in the ranking confirms its year-on-year growing fame and solid reputation in the United States.  Just think that three years ago, in 2017, Prosciutto di Parma ranked at the 48th place. CNN readers rewarded the Italian tradition, the unmistakeable flavour and mildness of Prosciutto di Parma and its versatility in pairings, especially pizza, melon, breadsticks and salads.

To stimulate the knowledge of the food traditions also through travelling, since 2011 the CNN editorial board dedicated to tourism has been engaging its readers with a survey where they are asked to vote their favourite foods. The latest list of the 50 World’s Best Foods updated as of September 2020, is a true journey around the world of taste, the unquestionable result of the American gastronomic history influenced by the melting pot of foreign cultures.  Even though many top quality Italian products are missing, the list is definitely varied with Vietnamese, Indian, Venezuelan, Japanese, Chinese foods and dishes, but there are also products that are typically associated to the American culture, such as popcorns, ketchup and donuts.  The unrivalled culinary tradition is however that of South-East Asia.
