Fertile Vesuvius

Published in Campania Food

The land around the famous Vesuvius volcano, near Naples, is very fertile thanks to the minerals contained in the lava combined with the Mediterranean microclimate of the zone.

It is a great place for apricots cultivation, over 100 types, including 'La Pellecchiella' considered the finest of all. It is a combination of a sweet taste and a compact pulp.

Also of note are cherries. Ask for the 'Ciliegia del Monte' which has a clear succulent and perfumed fruit and a red and yellow color.

Pesce Azzurro, Sardines, Anchovies & Tuna

Published in Campania Food

Pesce azzurro is the collective name referring to the whole range of red meat fish which typically gleam silver and blue in the open waters of the Mediterranean. By this we mean anchovies, sardines, tuna etc.

These type of fish swim nearer to the surface than the so called "pesce bianco" or white meat fish.

Pesci azzurri have fine qualities. They typically cost less in the market place than other fish, are best eaten fresh, as opposed to being frozen for future consumption, and require little cooking or preparation.
