Experience the Food of Campania at Aperitivo
Join us on Thursday 2nd of August as we bring the food of Campania to Aperitivo for our Campania Regional Dinner.
Located in the southern part of Italy, Campania sits at the front of the “boot” and boasts an excellent stretch of coastline along the Tyrrhenian Sea.
It governs the isle of Capri, as well as five provinces – Avellino, Benevento, Caserta, Naples and Salerno. The skyline of the capital city of Naples is filled with the sight of the infamous Mount Vesuvius, still very much an active volcano.
In the rich volcanic soil and warm sea breezes of Campania grow some of Italy’s most gorgeous and healthy fruits and vegetables. The incomparable San Marzano tomato thrives there, along with basil, garlic, peppers, broccoli rabe, olive and citrus trees, forming the simple but delicious basis for many of the dishes for which the region is famous.
Campania is the proud mother of three of Italy’s best recognised contributions to the food scene: macaroni, pizza and tomato sauce.
Since the region is also acclaimed for its fabulous water buffalo mozzarella cheese, it’s no wonder some remarkable combinations have resulted.
The names of some of Italy’s most beautiful towns are also located here: Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, the islands Ischia, Procida, Capri, and Nisida –
all pearls on the necklace that adorns the Amalfi Coast.
Then, there are Pompei and Ercolano, the ancient cities buried by a volcano.
As always the food will be plentiful, so get a group together or keep it simple and come in two and experience the food of Campania at Aperitivo.
