A jar of Maida Chili Peppers in your pantry means that you have both Italian chili oil + preserved chilis on call at all times. These peperoncini are your Mediterranean hot sauce. They combine the crisp mouthfeel and rich flavor of hot peppers in a balanced spicy + savory glow.
Father and son farming team, Franco and Fabrizio Vastola, grow this fragrant local pepper called Peperoncino a Cornetto on Maida Farm in Cilento, Campania. That’s the same farm where they make the 100% Leccino extra virgin olive oil they use to preserve the Chili Peppers. Some say the chili infused EVOO is the best part!
These peperoncini are amazing in Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino. To make this dish get yourself a jar, plus a bag of Spaghetti Faella, and a clove of garlic. (Adjust spiciness to taste by adding some of your go-to EVOO.)
