Caffe' (coffee)

Calitrian cuisine is renowned in the area for being very tasty and rather spicy. Typical hand-made pasta dishes include cingul', the local dish par excellence. This is short, twirly pasta boiled and then served with a thick, tasty tomato sauce; other varieties of pasta with the same sauce include lahan' and aurecchi' r' preut'- (priest’s ears in the local dialect); another must are cannazze', served with delicious hot tomato sauce and pecorino cheese; and sciliend' (a special vermicelli-like pasta) with a condiment of garlic-fried oil and hot chili pepper.

Meat-based delicacies include m'gliatiegghij' a local favourite made up of tasty roulades of kid or lamb casings garnished with cheese, offal, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and sliced sausage; sfritta, or chopped pork meat sautéed with hot peppers; also sammuchij', a local pudding made of pork blood seasoned with minced lard, little segments of orange peel, rice, raisins, cinnamon, pork casings, walnuts, salt and chili pepper powder.

A traditional fish-based delicacy is stockfish a la ualanegna, the favourite of plowmen in the past (ualan' means plowman), in which stockfish is boiled and flavoured with garlic, herbs and chili peppers. Meals, food and eating in Italy:

You may think that Italian meals are excessively large with infinite courses, but more than a means for sustenance they are viewed as a social event. The portions are much smaller than those served in northern European countries, and being generally based on vegetables and fruits and home-made pastas, they generally are healthier than their cross-culture substitutes. In addition, the secret when preparing an Italian meal is to select the freshest of local ingredients, so what you eat will change from month to month.

REGIONAL SPECIALTIES

The areas surrounding Calitri also have a infinite variety of hand-made pasta of various shapes and sizes. The most common are orecchiette, fusilli, tagliatelle, cavatelli, and ravioli. There are also many delicious meats in the area and local dishes typically feature veal, chicken, lamb and rabbit grilled on embers and accompanied with a variety of sauces. Among the deserts the ricotta pie is a must, and those with a sweet tooth can also enjoy crespelle, struffoli, and calzoncelli, a chick-pea sweet typical of the nearby town of Sant'Andrea di Conza. Lacedonia's dessert specialties include chestnut and chocolate-paste filled raviolis and sfogliatelle stuffed with sweetened ricotta cheese or bitter cherry jam.
The meats are particularly tasty as there are many farms in the area, producing beef, poultry and milk, and others specializing in sheep and goats. Locally-produced cheeses include caciocavallo, scamorza, caciotta, pecorino and caprino, burrini and salt ricotta, and local chestnuts and hazelnuts have Italy-wide fame. Last but not least, truffle-lovers will enjoy the region as it boasts a generous supply of both the white and the black variety.

LOCAL PRODUCTS

Popular local products include a variety of cheeses like caciocavallo, pecorino cheese, goat's cheese and butirr', a soft, buttery cheese enclosed and seasoned in its thick rind. We also recommend trying some of the local pork-based delicacies like Calitri's prosciutto, salami, and spicy sausages. Vegetarians have an infinite variety of fruit and vegetables to choose from, harvested and grown in the sunny and fertile lands around the village. Calitri's bread is also renowned for its texture and taste in the area.
Scarpegghij' is a customary Christmas season sweet that's a must for winter visitors. To make it, local bakers and women fry swirls and portions of leavened flour and drench them in honey or sprinkle them with sugar. Delicious. For months before and after the Easter festivities the locals enjoy P'cc'latiegghij', a local variety of doughnut with a hard boiled egg at the center covered with a dough cross, or Scallatiegghij':, a typical Easter sweet flavoured with salt, pepper, and fennel seeds. Very tasty.
