One of the most famous specialities of Calabria, the ‘nduja, with its strong and unmistakable flavour, is a special kind of sausage (let’s call it that), soft enough to be spread, but also very spicy enough to show its strength.

If it’s Easter, it’s dove, or rather, colomba. No need to worry, the famous bird has only to do with its shape. It is actually a delicious cake that is on most tables in Italy at Easter. Its shape is symbolic because the white dove has always been the symbol of peace, redemption and resurrection in the Christian world.
