In America, bacon is most often cured and smoked, and different flavours can be achieved by using a variety of wood, or rarely corn cobs. Sometimes peat is used in the United Kingdom. This process of smoking and curing can take up to eighteen hours, depending on the intensity of the flavour desired. The Virginia Housewife, possibly one of the earliest American cookbooks, gives no indication that bacon is ever not smoked, though it gives no advice on flavouring. American bacons include varieties that can be smoked with hickory or corncobs and flavourings such as red pepper, maple, brown sugar, honey, molasses, and occasionally cinnamon. Bacon can vary in sweetness and saltiness and may come from the Ozarks, New England, and the upper South states such as Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Pasta is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine, with the first origins dating back to 1154 in Sicily. It is also commonly used to refer to a wide variety of pasta dishes.

Fresh pasta was traditionally produced by hand, sometimes with the aid of simple machines, but today many varieties of fresh pasta are also commercially produced by large scale machines, and the pasta varieties are available in supermarkets.
