When it comes to historical Calabria, thought can only go to the simple cuisine of old, to the rich flavors made with the natural ingredients that the rustic life of a time offered. Another image comes to mind when it comes to ancient Calabria: the mafia. This text effectively combines the two things.
Incorporated with two novels about the life of Calabrian brigands and a fascinating chapter dedicated to the images of one of the oldest habits of criminal Calabria: tattoos in prison, Francesco Caravetta, Richard Costanzo and Camillo Gigliotti embraced the mission of transposing into words the old Calabrian recipes, allowing the reader to discover, and perhaps taste, what the ancient Calabrian mafiosi used to eat.
