Proving a hit with diners at Cicchetti, Fumo and Flying Pizza, our feature menu ‘Giro d’Italia’ (tour of Italy) features a different region of Italy each month, exploring the culinary specialities unique to its location. As we leave the popular tourist region of Campania, September sees us head along the southern peninsula to the much less explored Calabria. Spicy and clean, the trademark of Calabrian cuisine is pepperoncino a fiery chilli pepper. Here you are likely to find Nduia, a hot pepperoncino spread, cheeses such as caciocavallo, mature provola and pecorino, the cipolla rossa from Tropea is a sweet red onion used in rustic pies, meat dishes, and in sweet preserves. Dried figs are a staple in desserts as is bergamotto, a citrus fruit that grows along the south coast. A must for all foodies, we hope you’ll enjoy taking a gastronomic journey through Calabria with us, available through September only.
