Chilli paste (crema di peperoncino)




DiSanto & Family's crema di peperoncino is a premium chilli paste made from the finest Calabrian chillies. Every jar bursts with the vibrant, fresh and spicy flavours and colours of this beautiful region of southern Italy. This robust and rustic chilli paste is a versatile and easy-to-use ingredient that is a boon for busy home cooks. A little goes a long way, so add it to dishes in small amounts and then store it in the fridge for next time.

Calabria’s unofficial symbol is the horn-shaped red chilli pepper. Not only does it add a distinctive kick to the region's flavour-fuelled cuisine, but it also wards off malocchio (the evil eye). The sunny, dry climate is perfect for growing Calabrian peperoncino, a medium-hot variety of capsicum featuring complex smoky, salty and fruity flavours. DiSanto carefully selects the freshest and most high-quality chilli peppers. At the same time, our made-by-hand production process ensures that DiSanto's Italian chilli paste is not too hot and mild but just right.

DiSanto's chilli paste can be added to soups, stews, fajitas, tacos, curries, fish, grilled meats, marinades, stir-fries and more to bring Calabria's authentic and delicious flavours to your kitchen.
