The Products of Aspromonte

The food products of Aspromonte are linked to the local breeding and agricultural tradition: the crumbly wheat bread cooked in the wood-burning oven, capocollo, a cold cut obtained from the pork shoulder and loin, pappaluni beans, and Aspromonte potatoes. Among cheese, Limina goat cheese, smoked ricotta cheese, and the so-called canestraio. And again, torrone filled with almonds, honey, extra-virgin olive oil, passito Greek wine produced in a small area of the Municipality of Gerace, outside the area of Greco di Bianco DOC.
