The Amalfi Coast, famous for its picturesque coastal towns, breathtaking cliffs and picture-postcard views, is not only a treat for the eyes, but also for the palate, thanks to a cuisine rich in authentic Campania flavors.
Ndunderi are a type of handmade fresh pasta typical of Minori, traditionally prepared to celebrate the feast in honor of Santa Trofimena, the local patron saint. They have a history rooted in the cuisine of ancient Rome, taking inspiration from the “Latin balls” prepared with spelt flour and curdled milk common in those times.
Ndunderi Minoresi are known for their simplicity and use of fresh, high-quality ingredients: fresh ricotta, potatoes, flour, and eggs. The classic seasoning features meat in the sauce, but pesto, shellfish or fish can also be used for the white version. Each bite is an explosion of flavor, a celebration of the local culinary tradition and the cooks’ love for their art.
