If there is one thing that makes Calabrian food Calabrian, it is spicy red peppers, and these are hot! While many varieties of hot pepper are grown in the region, most are referred to as Calabrian peperoncino, and used in regional dishes. Like all capsicum plants, these peppers require hot weather to flourish and develop the oils that give them their spiciness.
These are very versatile and can be used across starters, main courses, pizzas and sauces.
