Procida Island

Cuisine of Procida Island for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Of course, the most important ingredient in most dishes of the Procida cuisine is fish. It is not surprising: every day dozens of fishing vessels unload their fish to the shore, from which they prepare delicious dishes in several dozen restaurants of Sancho Catolico and Corricella. Seafood has always been very important for the inhabitants of the island, and a peculiar, very symbolic dish "fleeing fish" is an additional confirmation. It's worth trying even for those who cannot stand the fish. The composition includes garlic, parsley, cherry, olive oil. All this is put in a saucepan with a lot of red pepper and brought to a boil. They also add dried bread to the soup. Needless to say, this dish was part of the cuisine of the poor who simply could not afford fish since ancient times.
Procida, like most small Italian islands, can not boast of entertaining children's centers or noisy water parks. Despite this, here you can have quite a comfortable holiday with the child. A … Open
Be sure to order a portion or two of risotto in the local restaurants. However, it's worth trying everything that is somehow connected with seafood. Here, fish, shrimp, octopus, and crustaceans are fried, stewed, dried. Seafood is added to soups, salads, assorted sauces or served as a main dish with pasta, rice or vegetables. To compliment any fish, it's best to order a glass or two of Aglianico wine.
Another unique local dish is a "salad of lemon". Interestingly, this is not a salad, but, in fact, a soup made from local Procida lemons, differing in very rich taste. They add garlic, meat, and red pepper to the plate with already cut lemons and pour a little water. After that, the mixture is seasoned with olive oil and salt. Despite the apparent incompatibility of the ingredients, it is, in fact, very tasty. Well, if you want a classic first course, then order a minestrone. Invented in the Roman Empire, this vegetable soup today does not have a strict formula and is famous far beyond Italy. You can also try boba, a thick soup of pumpkin, eggplant, basil, and zucchini.

The residents of Procida, like the rest of the Italians, consider the principle of bella figura, which can be translated as “keep style”, very important in their life. A kind of … Open
Do not think that in restaurants on the island you will only find fish and vegetables. There are plenty of meat dishes. Mostly, poultry and rabbit meat, but they use the usual beef and pork as well. Carpaccio, prosciutto, bresaola, lasagna, ravioli – all this is worth it to be tasted. Here they serve beef and pork with pasta, rice or potatoes, fry, and bake chicken and turkey, steam the rabbit in its own juice, especially on the eve of holidays.
Procida Particular attention should be paid, of course, to pizza – it’s not for nothing that Italy has presented this dish to the whole world. It is interesting that here pizza is often sold as a snack "on the go", while two pieces are piled with fillings to each other in order to be more convenient to eat. Pizza can not only be with meat, but with fish, and even vegetables as well. They often add artichokes and chicory to the latter. Do not pass by the local cheeses. Parmesan, mozzarella, gorgonzola, pecorino, ricotta – each of them is unique in its own way and is sure to please a true gourmet.
The abbey of St. Michael the Archangel is certainly one of the main attractions of Procida. This is the oldest building on the island, built in the 7th century by four Benedictine monks. … Open
You can find a lot of desserts here. Classic tiramisu, pannacotta from a cream with fruits and berries, twice baked Bisconte cookies, egg sauce with sabayon wine – these are just a few dishes that are worth trying. A local ice cream stands apart – it is so great that it will surely be appreciated even by those who do not like sweet things. Please note that portions of this delicacy are quite large here. Among popular soft drinks, coffee is in the first place, and among alcoholic, of course, wine. The most famous varieties are Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Montepulciano. It is also worthwhile to taste Limoncello liqueur.
