Gastronomy in Amalfi coast
To think the gastronomical offerings in Positano are limited to but a few famous restaurants by the sea of Positano - even though the “griffe” and the name is a guarantee of quality – can be misleading.There are trattoria in Positano where the old culinary customs are kept and respected, almost with cult-like tradition. These restaurants like not only to keep the secrets of the Positano kitchen close to their chests, but also those of the whole Amalfi Coast.It’s for this reason that it would be wise to allow the restaurant owners to make their suggestions, as they know best; perhaps starting with a local Italian bread of German origin made with chestnuts, which come from the woods at Santa Maria del Castello, and made more rich with the addition of raisins, pine nuts, walnuts, dried fruit and sometimes even chocolate.Bread from Positano is not the only Positanese delicacy made with chestnuts. There is also a traditional chestnut cake called “castagnaccio”.
A special mention needs to be given for the “zeppole” (potato doughnuts), which every year are the protagonists for a gastronomic festival called “sagra della zeppola”, held annually in December in Positano. Swinging from the sweet to the salty, let’s also remember that the local sausages boast a unique flavour; thanks to ancient tradings with the East, locals learned how to season and better preserve these products. Following the best gastronomic traditions of the Amalfi coast, each dish is made with particularly fresh and genuine ingredients: meat, wine, local oil and other products all come from the nearby villages of Agerola, Vico Equense and the flat lands of Paestum further south. Local citrus fruit, especially lemons from the Amalfi Coast, are used to make Limoncello, an alcoholic drink with a unique flavour and which also facilitates digestion. Other typical liqueurs from Positano and the Amalfi Coast are liqueurs made from walnuts and fennel. Walnut liqueur is made from the famous walnuts from Sorrento, whilst the fennel liqueur is made using the wild fennel seeds picked in the nearby Ieranto Bay area.(the first is made from the famous walnuts from Sorrento while the second uses wild fennel seeds picked in the nearby Ieranto bay)
