Italian food is eaten all over the world, and if you cook, even once in awhile, you’ve probably prepared some classic Italian dishes. Whether you’re cooking for a family, group or preparing a romantic dinner, you really can’t go wrong with Italian cuisine.
The NASA Space Food Systems Laboratory (SFSL) is responsible for developing the US astronauts’ meals. The food needs to be high quality, easy to prepare in the weightlessness of space and must conform to the spacecraft stowage requirements. In addition, astronauts’ experience a loss in their sense of taste while in space and the SFSL make an extra effort to create spicy, flavour-filled food items to compensate for this.
