Recipes of the first courses

The recipes of the first dishes of the  gastronomic tradition in Maratea are on the tables in the festive or everyday use, but always based on simple ingredients.
These courses are not always easy to find in local restaurants but are to be looked after as a precious asset because they give a unique experience of flavors, quality and genuineness, the fruit of the land and the sea of Maratea.
For wine combinations, as well as for the second, we recommend red and white local wines or, especially for meat dishes, a medium Aglianico del Vulture.
