In particular, in the Calabrian recipes paprika is the most important ingredient, that was imported to Calabria from the New World in 1500 and today enlivens almost all dishes, based both on fish and meat.

You must absolutely taste the inviting peperoncini ripieni (small peppers stuffed with sardines and capers), the involtini di melanzane (aubergine roulades) and the n’duja, a mixture of pork meat, bacon fat and a great quantity of paprika that you can spread on bread or taste with meat and vegetables.

We also recommend you to sip the delicious liquors aromatized with liquorice, bergamot and lemon.
