What to eat in Chieti - Where to eat
the capital of the homonymous province of Abruzzo,
belongs to a land that has always maintained a strong bond
with tradition. Here you can taste products that derive from
the pastoral traditions of the inland mountain areas of the
region, as well as the maritime traditions of the coastal
area. In the restaurants of Chieti you can choose from the
many typical products of Abruzzo that have entered the
collective imagination of the whole world. In particular,
you can choose from among the first ones:
Guitar spaghetti (spaghetti alla chitarra): a type of egg pasta,
produced using a characteristic wooden tool called the " guitar", and
pressed with a rolling pin to form macaroni two or three millimetres
The Sagne typical pasta, made of water, salt and flour, is made
with the shape of a sagna, typical of Abruzzo, served with beans with
tomato sauce or white sagna.
Tra i secondi:
La porchetta. Molti gli ambulanti che lungo le
strade abruzzesi offrono a prezzi davvero abbordabili, panini con questa
gustosa carne di maiale.
di pecora: piccoli pezzi di agnello tagliati
a cubetti tenuti insieme da asticelle di legno, cotti sulla brace nella
tradizionale fornacella. Un piatto povero che può essere gustato nei
ristoranti a specialità carne, ma anche di molti ristoranti della costa
e in quasi tutte le feste patronali.
Il famoso brodetto ‘alla vastese’, che unisce i
frutti del mare e della terra, ovvero ortaggi e pesci cucinati interi,
il tutto accompagnato da pane.
The porchetta. Many itineraries along the streets of
Abruzzo offer at very affordable prices, sandwiches with
this tasty pork meat.
The sheep's roasting: small pieces of lamb cut into cubes held
together by wooden roses, cooked on the embers in the traditional
cooker. A poor dish that can be enjoyed in restaurants specializing in
meat specialities, but also of many restaurants on the coast and in
almost every patron saint's party.
The famous "brodetto alla vastese", which combines the fruits of
the sea and land, that is vegetables and fish cooked whole, all
accompanied by bread.
Among the desserts:
The Bocconotti, shortcrust pastry cakes filled with chocolate,
honey, jam or custard, which are so good that they are eaten in one
mouthful, from here, according to tradition, their name.
Le Sise delle Monache also called' Tre Monti', sweets formed by
two layers of soft sponge cake, alternated by a layer of pastry cream.
This cake owes its name to the poet Modesto Della Porta who, in seeing
it, thought of a particular anatomical detail proper to the nuns, who,
according to a legend, to hide their forms they used to put, at the
breast of the clothes so as to show the shape of a third breast.
