This risotto is made with two products from Calabria, a region in Southern Italy: the bergamot whose taste is less sour but more bitter than lemon, and the red onion of Tropea, of extraordinary sweetness and with a delicate scent.
The Bergamot comes from a short stretch of land in the Reggio Calabria Province, along the Ionian Sea coast. The red onion instead is cultivated in the area around Tropea, a small city by the Tyrrhenian Sea, known for its clifftop historic center, and for stunning beaches.
Are you asking where to find this week the bergamot in Copenhagen area?? Of course at Mercatino delle verdure (Ca’- Cucina, Rebekkavej 49 – Hellerup), our special supplier for high quality and diverse varieties of fruit and vegetables. :-))
