Alongside the wonderful scenery the variety of foods in this region are also truly stunning. Fresh seafood and fish from the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean give rise to tasty yet simple dishes, that sprinkled with the juice of freshly picked Amalfi lemons bring the dishes to life. The rich volcanic soil of Campania is ideal for the growing of some of Italy’s wonderful vegetables including the San Marzano tomato which is considered by chefs to be the best tomato in the world for producing tomato pastes and sauces.
