                Good tomato (or tomatoe if you're Quayle) sauces didn't even exist in Italy until at least the 1600's. Probably not until the 1800's! Tomato's come from South America.

                Just saying. That's all.

                                Tony Soprano was wrong.

                                While it seems doubtful that Marco Polo was the first to introduce Italians to Pasta, the Chinese ate Noodles since 3000BC, while the first western record of boiled noodles was in the Jerusalem Talmud during the 5th century AD written in Aramaic.

                                Tomatoes were first brought back to Europe from the gardens of the Palace of Montezuma by Cortez. North American tomatoes were brought over by English settlers.......what a roundabout trip!

                                The first recorded Italian tomato sauce recipe was in 1839. The word ketchup or catsup is a translation from Chinese, meaning tomato sauce.

                                The Chinese were using chopsticks since 5000BC and even today is far more efficient for eating noodles than forks.....no twirling involved. They had forks, but it was not in favor because Chinese food is served in small pre-cut pieces, as poking with forks and slicing with knives at a table was considered barbaric. In fact, Confucius advised people not to have knives at the table because it would make a dining table resemble a slaughterhouse. Knives were forbidden in the Emperor's diningroom, and what was good for the Emperor was good enough for everyone else. With no knives at the table, there were no need for forks.

                                The Greeks had forks, but they were only used as a serving tool to hold a big piece of meat while carving. Eating was still done by barehand. The actual eating with a fork came from the East. By 7th Century AD, there were records of eating forks used by Royal Courts in the Middle-East. From the 10th to 13th Century, forks were commonly used by the wealthy in Byzantium. It was in the 11th Century that the Byzantine wife of a Doge of Venice brought the fork to Italy. The Italians resisted the fork and it was not until the 16th century that it became commonly accepted.
