In this place was born the Mediterranean Diet that just in Pioppi has been studied for the frist time; and to it is ispirated the alimentary tradition of Vela hotel. Wheat bread cooked in wood oven of the hotel, fresh pasta worked in base, caught fish in the opposite sea, fruits vegetables, eggs and meat came from the nearly hilly villages or from the farmes in the nearly plane.
Further a mediterranean sun touch is cosituited of olives oil, always available for tastes but is also possible to buy. Its unmistakeble taste is given by the cold pressing done into the family's oil mill.
