The story behind the Margherita pizza is pretty interesting. In 1899, Queen Marghereta visited Naples to escape the dreaded plague, and Chef Rafaelle Esposito created a pizza for the queen with tomatoes (red), Mozzarella (white), and basil (green), the colours of the Italian flag. The queen loved the pizza, and the chef named it after her, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Spaghetti Arrabiatta, ordered for Anoushka, who wanted to eat 'noodles'. It turned out to be a little spicier than what an Arrabiatta should be - a case of being a little too liberal with the chilly flakes.
