Evening in Southern Italy
Southern Italy is decidedly Mediterranean in climate: sun-kissed vegetables and fruits form the basis of a gutsy cuisine, and pasta reigns supreme. Lamb and pork are the preferred meats, and cheese range from fresh and spoonable to intense and salty. Greek settlers and Arab invaders left an unmistakable imprint on the foodways of this area, and staple dishes combine sweet and savory flavors in often-surprising ways.
