Calabria (Calabria in Italian) is a region located in the extreme southwest of the country.  More precisely on the point in front of Sicily.  The capital is Catanzaro and the largest city is Reggio Calabria.

This region located between mountains and sea is essentially mountainous with a Mediterranean climate.

Its main resource is agriculture which is a very good thing for cooking enthusiasts.  The olive produced offers an excellent very fruity oil. Calabria grows a lot of citrus.  It produces 95% of bergamots.

The pepper is found in several preparations such as anduja (sausage  soft very spicy). We cannot end this overview without talking about Calabrian wild oregano which is considered by most foodies to be one of the best on the market.
