What are the typical dishes of Caserta?
One of the first dishes that intrigued us very much is the Mnestra Mmaretata, which translates from the dialect with the married soup.

When the meat is ready, vegetables and cheese will be added: The taste you get is a truly exceptional flavor.
Another typical dish, of which you will surely never have heard, unfortunately, is the Cianfotta. It may remind you of a sort of Sicilian born-again, but it is no farther. The peppers are fried with garlic, onion, potatoes, tomatoes and aubergines. It must not be broth. It is an excellent contour, which can be accompanied with bread. A drug, insured.
In addition to the pizza, you can enjoy the first dishes really special
We move on to the second most famous of the city of Caserta. This is present in the various restaurants and is the classic dish of the feasts and Sundays: pork fillet with white sauce.
