BASILICATA

Basilicata is a region of Southern Italy and the capital is Potenza. It borders the regions Puglia and Campania as well as the Tyrrhenian Sea. However, the longest area of coastline is on the Gulf of Taranto. It is at the area of the in-step of Italy’s boot. The other well-known town in Basilicata is Matera. Matera is also the Italian Capital of Culture for 2019 and known for its sassi. Sassi are said to be the first human shelters of record in Italy. Despite being vacant for years, people have now moved back into these cave houses. Dishes from Basilicata include pane cotto and strazzata, homemade breads. Additionally, the Senise red pepper is the best of the region. After dinner try a sanguinaccio dolce, a sweet cream with dark chocolate and served with biscuits. The original recipe requires sangue di miale, meaning pig’s blood, giving it an acidic aftertaste.
