Potenza Food & Wine
On Potenza's traditional menu, besides to the delicious Cold Cuts ( Salumi ) and cheeses, the pasta dishes prevail, such as the strascinati ai ravioli, lasagne and homemade maccheroni, served with meat or vegetable sauces and salted ricotta or hot pecorino, instead of Italian Parmesan. Other typical dishes from Potenza include lamb, chicken, beccacce alla potentina, mugliulatieddi, entrails with cheese, honey focaccia and mandorlata di peperone.
We must also point out the existence of optimum mineral waters which flow from springs along the slopes of Mount Vulture and are characterized by incomparable and curative "powers". In Potenza there is a particular gassosa (fizzy drink) that should not be missed.
