Welcome dinner @home in #Calabria

Well… few days back at my parents village in South Italy. The place name is Roggiano Gravina, in the Calabria Region.
I promised myself to don’t exaggerate with food… well as Wilde quoted “the best way to resist temptations is surrender to them”. I don’t last three hours after my arrival…
Wild asparagus cake, mozzarella, homegrown chicken, rape vegetables… fresh meat sausage “sazizza” in local dialect…

this is a dangerous place… especially when it’s your mother, your aunt and your cousin (a professional chef) cooking to welcome you!
