With every taste, the ingredients that are used in our recipes tell the stories of the people who grow, harvest, and process them.
Andrea, the bee shepherd
"Every spring my wings and antennae grow; every year I become a bee."
Luca, keeper of the chestnut groves
"The passion for what I do is in my DNA. Like my father and my grandfather before him, today my children and I are all custodians of the precious treasure of Calizzano."
Romano, the fruit multiplier
"The idea was to create an orchard so that people could come here. It meant being unconventional in the choice of varieties but also in the shape of the trees, which had to be kept as low as possible for access from the ground."
Luigi, the brother of lemons
"I'm the eighth of thirteen children. We all lived in one room and my parents would go to make love under the lemon trees. That's how I was conceived."
Pasquale, the almond scholar
"As a child I was raised on bread and almonds: the family talked of nothing else."
Lucia, the hazelnut guardian
"In the family everything revolves around hazelnuts. We often joke about it, but it's the truth: the more generations go forward, the more we are addicted to hazelnuts."
Ivan, the cow personal trainer
"My daughter, as a child, gave cows the names of Disney princesses (like Cinderella, Belle, and Snow White). Even now she's the one who gives the cows their names, but she calls them after the characters in a TV series or the names of the places where she goes on vacation."
Fortunato, the keeper of liquorice
"Calabria produces the best liquorice in the world: even the Encyclopaedia Britannica says so."
