The abundance of fresh local produce as well as highly skilled local chefs make the Campania region one of the most envied culinary landscapes in the world. Most regional meals are prepared using of seasonal fresh ingredients such as olives, oranges, lemons, eggplants, tomatoes, almonds, grapes, and more; not to mention all of the seafood fished right off the coast. On this trip the leader will always be on hand to recommend the best restaurants and specialities in the islands. In Capri try the simple but delicious insalata caprese (mozzarella, tomato and basil salad) and the ravioli capresi, Capri’s staple dish made with simple pasta dough filled with parmigiano and aged caciotta cheese, tossed with a fresh tomato and basil sauce. Other of the island's traditional first courses are scialatielli, a fresh ribbon pasta often served with seafood or sautéed vegetables, and spaghetti alla Nerano, tossed with zucchini and cheese. Seafood lovers visiting the islands will also find excellent local shrimp caught on the sea floor between Capri and Massa Lubrense, which are served sautéed or eaten raw with just a bit of olive oil. There is no better way to end your meal than with a generous slice of torta caprese, a local chocolate and almond cake, which is traditionally served with a small, icy glass of limoncello. In Ischia, enjoy spaghetti alla puttanesca (spaghetti with olives, chilli, garlic and tomato sauce), coniglio all’ischiatana (rabbit cooked with garlic, chilli, tomato, herbs and white wine) all accompanied by top quality local wines such as Ischia Bianco, Ischia Rosso, Biancolella and Forastera.
