While northern Italians love their rich cream sauces, risotto, polenta and stuffed meats, people in the south embrace flavours such as tangy tomato sauces, olive oil and fresh seafood. Both north and south have contributed their share to classic Italian cuisine, but each region has its own distinct set of flavours.

From Southern Italy, you will meet (and taste) the vibrant colours of some of the following: Pizza, Sartu’di Riso (A rice dish from the Spanish Court), Aubergine Parmigiana, Pomodorino sauce, the humble Pasta and chickpeas, Arancini, Lemon biscuits and the best Amalfi doughnuts!
