The typical cusine of the Sorrento peninsula is characteristcally simple, yet delicious! Created with the basic Mediterranean ingredients that are locally produced. The Mediterranean diet is reknowned as being one of the healthiest.
The coastal areas offer a variety of exquisite sea-foods, whilst inland the cusine becomes robust and hearty.
Olive oil, tomatoes and mozzarella, and special seasonings give origin to such specialties as cannelloni, gnocchi, pasta with beans, and stuffed peppers. Lighter meals consist of things such as caprese 'fresh mozzarella and tomatoe', pasta with zucchine squash, marinated alici 'small local fish' and eggplant parmesan.
Homemade pasta in different shapes and sizes, pizza, fresh and seasoned cheeses, cold cuts and vegetables prepared in a most original way accompany fish and meat dishes.
And to wash it all down, only the finest D.O.C wines,such as L'antico Falerno, the famous Taurasi, Greco del Tufo, and Lacryma Christi. In addition, some newcomers: Asprinio and Falanghina e Coda di Volpe. Last, but by no means least, the desserts: originally created in the kitchens of local convents centuries ago, today the most exquisit pastries can be found in the many pastry shops in Sorrento. Specialties such as sfogliatelle, paste reali, ice-creams, lemon delights and a variety of locally made liquers like limoncello, nocino, finocchietto and liquorice.
We loved our visit to your farm. Food was amazing . Do you ship products to the USA? Like olive oil and limoncello?
We visited the farm on 14th October 2015. The drive to the farm in their small bus, on there very narrow roads was an experience not to be missed. What a peaceful and delightful place. We toured the beautiful farm animal's and vineyard's which was very interesting. We had a tasting of the farm produce in the restaurant Watched a display of mozzarella cheese and lemon cello making.
