Potenza, the typical cuisine

Not to be lost is the typical cuisine.

Simplicity and freshness are the hallmarks, starting from fresh pasta, traditionally made by hand using only two ingredients: water and flour. Handmade pasta is the undisputed star of local cuisine and flavoured by either vegetables or meat ragù.

Potenza still has a long tradition of using dairy products characterised by the production of soft cheese filled with butter, mozzarella, soft cheese, ricotta, caciocavallo and pecorino.

Among the typical products there are also the meat sausage, salami and small pieces of meat conserved in oil or lard.
