Typical Products From Sorrento

The oil of this peninsular is particularly renowned, since it is at once fruitful, flavorsome and balanced. It offers a full-bodied taste without being overpowering to enrich and not override the natural taste of your dishes. This oil works brilliantly with typical Italian dishes, which focus on quality and harmony rather than using an abundance of ingredients and spices as is common in other parts of the world.

One of the dishes it goes best with is the wonderfully simple Italian caprese salad. Indeed, the mozzerella Fiordilatte made from fresh cow’s milk is one of Sorrento’s most notorious delicacies and goes perfectly with the local salad. Mozzerella is not, however, the only cheese to be tasted during your visit: the provolone del Monaco leaves an intense flavour in your mouth thanks to its maturing in regional caves.

Sorrento is above all a coastal region, which means its typical products are often drawn from the sea. This area is infamous for fish dishes as well as lemons alongside many other vegetables, which benefit from the fresh, ocean air, such as the artichokes of Colli di Fontanelle and the San Marzano tomatoes .

Indeed, the famous lemons form the base of the wonderful limoncello which is definitely worth trying! Oranges are also particularly sweet in this area. The colours of these fruit are a visual joy in the area as well as a wonderful culinary experience. Their presence has been documented over centuries and they are cultivated according to strict rules in order to ensure the highest quality. Children will love the succulent, sweet citrus-based marmalades and jams.

Walnuts are also renowned here, since the kernel can be extracted intact. They form a wonderful base for pasta sauces and dishes.

Besides food and drink, Sorrento also offers many other regional goods. It is home to a hand-made embroidery centre; a family business, which has existed for more than seventy years. Some of Italy’s last existing embroiders work there allowing you to purchase a wide array of beautiful embroidery from table cloths to bed-sheets.

Not only can you feast on fish and ride ferries here, you can also take some of the coastal experience home with you by purchasing a scale model of one of Sorrento’s boat yards. These are made with high-quality materials and great care.

The cameos fashioned by the Bimonte family are notorious all over the world. Their originality means that they have been delighting tourists for years. Each piece comes with a certificate of authenticity so that you can offer a truly unique gift to your loved ones.

Another family business typical of the region is the Ceramiche Casola. The artisan craftsmen boast years of experience that has been passed down from generation to generation. Each piece is unique and hand-crafted.

Part of the joy of visiting Sorrento is in exploring the the artisanal farmhouses to purchase homemade products.
