Hi you all, I just got back from a lovely week in the south of Italy, in Calabria!! A week full of sun, extraordinary beaches and lots of delicious food! But this year for the first time since I visit Calabria I got the chance to visit the well-known Peperoncino Festival in Diamante. For 5 days Diamante is literally showing everything that has to do with Calabria’s pride: Il Peperoncino
Liquor with peperoncino, sweets or chocolate bars with this hot ingredient, ice creams al peperoncino, various (spicy) dishes, hot sausages, ‘nduja, jars and bowls and so much more with lovely drawings of the peperoncino on it. And the best part, you can get a taste of everything out there. It was absolutely amazing!

Il peperoncino together with Calabria’s other pride Il Cedro…

  1. Great photos you have captured all those wonderful colours of the festa.The njuda looks great I hope you bought some. By the way did you make it up to the Whitehorse Pizzeria in Maratea.

  2. Hey Tiets leuk verhaal er zitten alleen wat opvallende spelfouten in, zoals change ipv chance maar ook teg en verl tijd.
