Lidia's Italy

Sweet And Spicy Calabria (Calabria)

Season 3, Episode 25 of 26

What unique and favorite regional product of Calabria did the Queen of England have delivered regularly to the castle's kitchen? That would be the Tropea onion, a purple torpedo-looking sweet onion that is used to enhance the flavor in much of Calabrian cuisine, and whose healing properties have been promoted since Roman times. When not the Tropea onions, you can surely find the heat from all the peperoncino that is used to add spice to the cuisine, and is found in every household. Lidia prepares some fantastic Calabrian dishes including her Sweet Onion Soup, some Spicy Calamari and for dessert, Sesame Candy.
