The Flavors of Irpinia: the Laticauda sheep – A matter of breeding

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

Meet the Laticauda sheep,

A breed promoted by a Slow Food Presidium  with a broad fat tail and a white fleece, with no wool on its underbelly. It is traditionally reared in sparse flocks in the hills of Irpinia. A typical local dish is ammugliatielli, bundles of the sheep’s innards, usually discarded during butchering. The sheep’s meat is excellent simply roast or barbecued. Here the Laticauda sheep will be served by Enzo and his family from the historic Antica trattoria Di Pietro in Melito Irpino, in the province of Avellino, a local institution since it first opened in the 1930s.

Served: Lamb alla cacciatora  (with tomato) and agli aromi    ( with added herbs) Paired with the wines of Azienda Agricola Ciro Picariello, Summonte (Av).
