The gastronomic tradition of Reggio Calabria is very various. The real star is the red pepper, as in the rest of Calabria. Among the main dishes there are the brawn sausage, capicollo, fillets and ‘nduja; the traditional cheese is rosamarina, known as the “caviar of the South”. Inland there are many types of mushrooms, and a huge variety of homemade dishes, typical of the Calabrian tradition such as the sauce, parmesan, the pan of artichokes, sausage with fennel and black pepper and the classic cheese. While, among the seafood dishes there are swordfish, caught between April and September, the “blue fish”, in addition to the cake of anchovies. Desserts include crepes with sugar, traditional Christmas meal, nougat, cannoli with ricotta, ice cream (among the various tastes we note the cream Reggina), nougat ice cream and granita accompanied by fresh croissants craft. Do not forget the “nzuddhe”, made of flour, honey, almonds and cooked wine, typical of the area of Tauro. Excellent white and red wines, including the Zibibbo, Cerasuolo and the Greek of Bianco DOC.
