The only thing better than food porn is food porn with motion, which is why The Perennial Plate’s short film ode to Italian cuisine caught our eye. Unsurprisingly, every one of its “10 Things We Love About Italy” has to do with food, from pasta (duh) to gelato to parmesan. It’s a look not just at the final product, but at the labor-intensive process behind it, including a sweet-looking grandma type making pasta by hand and a peek at the painstaking effort it takes to craft a truly great cheese.

The whole video’s basically a gratuitous excuse to stare at Italian food for four minutes, but The Perennial Plate is hosting a travel giveaway to sweeten the deal. Buon appetito!
