Known as the ‘toe’ of the ‘boot’ of the country, Calabria is the most southern region of mainland Italy. Its unusual mix of Mediterranean coastline and mountainous environments means it has high temperatures in the summer and low temperatures in the winter. Coupled with great hillside settings it creates the perfect climate for growing olives.

The summery heat allows for very hot chillies to grow, contributing to the most famous product of the region, nduja. This is a spicy chilli and pork fat spread which is usually smeared over toasted Italian bread.

No longer associated with the old influences of the Mafiosa, Calabria has been become an authentic, vibrant and bustling region of Italy.
