The coastal area offers numerous recipes based on fish and we have to admit that this cuisine from the mainland is typical and a truly exceptional cuisine with stronger and more pungent flavors. All dishes are cooked and seasoned with olive oil of Sorrento, from specially selected olives from the territory which are cold pressed and are accompanied by the wines of these regions, wines made from the best grapes. Among the most important ingredients of these recipes are tomatoes, peppers and zucchini, fruits and vegetables that can excellently grow in these areas thanks to stable temperatures all year round, and to the sun kissing this earth every month, not only in the summer.
Thanks to this exceptional climate, citrus fruits can grow undisturbed, almost without any assistance on a mans' behalf, to treat them. The orange and lemon trees dot the landscape and offer a unique scent to the towns that you will find surrounding the Sorrentine Peninsula. You must taste the jam made from orange and lemon and do not forget to drink the Limoncello as digestive after a meal, a liquor made with lemons from Sorrento which has become known all over the world.
