Franca welcomes us into her house in Ferrazzano, an ancient settlement that is spread out over the hills around Campobasso, the regional capital of Molise. Franca’s village is on a hill surrounded by beautiful pine forests, and there is a breathtaking panorama from its peak, which overlooks the Mainarde and Matese mountains, with glimpses of the Majella Maiella mountain range and the city of Campobasso.
Our Cesarina is keen to guide you through the flavours of the stunning Molise region. Her local cuisine is particularly rich and varied, with influences from the surrounding regions of Abruzzo, Campania and Puglia. In this Taste Experience, you will also sample one of the culinary treasures of Franca’s town, ‘insaccati’ sausages.
