Still dreaming of a summer trip to Italy? Go on a taste-driven tour from the comfort of your own home with A Trip to Calabria, curated with Calabrian specialties.
Located at the southernmost tip of the Italian peninsula, Calabria stretches between the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas with narrow beaches rising quickly into mountain ranges. This rugged terrain naturally created pockets of isolated societies, many of whose culture continues to reflect Calabria's leading role as part of Magna Graecia. In fact, several mountain villages still speak a dialect derived from ancient Greek.
This unique cultural and physical legacy has yielded – happily for us – a cuisine that celebrates the local readily available and boldly-flavored ingredients. The cuisine has remained simple and genuine: olive oil, hot peppers, and, of course, seafood.
Overflowing with typical local products, this gift box will transport the lucky recipient to Calabria.
