Visit the Novi Velia area to taste the famous “mozzarella co’a mortedda” cheese wrapped in myrtle leaves. For more intense and spicy flavors, try the “cacioricotta” cheese, a mix of goat and sheep milk cheese produced in the Mount Gelbison area.
Gioi is a town known by gourmet-lovers for its richly flavored “soppressata di Gioi”, a salami made of tender pork cuts blended with pepper grains.
