Abruzzo is a region in central Italy known for its rich culinary traditions. One of the most famous dishes from this region is “Cumbriziun’”, a traditional soup made with a variety of local ingredients such as legumes, vegetables, and pasta. This hearty and flavorful soup is a staple in many towns and communes of Abruzzo, including L’Aquila, Pescara, and Chieti. The history of Cumbriziun’ dates back to the rural traditions of Abruzzo, where farmers would make use of whatever ingredients they had on hand to create a nourishing and satisfying meal.

Another popular dish from Abruzzo is “Le Sbattute”, a type of omelette made with eggs, cheese, and a variety of fillings such as vegetables, herbs, and cured meats. This dish is commonly found in the towns of Teramo and Sulmona, where it is often served as a quick and delicious meal for breakfast or lunch. The history of Le Sbattute can be traced back to the simple and rustic cuisine of Abruzzo, where eggs and cheese were readily available ingredients.

Both Cumbriziun’ and Le Sbattute have been recognized as traditional Abruzzese dishes and have received the prestigious “PAT” (Prodotti Agroalimentari Tradizionali) designation, which certifies their authenticity and adherence to Traditional Recipesss and methods. This recognition helps to preserve and promote the culinary heritage of Abruzzo, ensuring that these beloved dishes will continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
