The most typical among the Calabrian dry cakes was born in the Silan village of San Giovanni in Fiore (Cosenza) as a gift of the groom’s family during the wedding, not by chance its spiral shape symbolizes archaic wishing symbols of expansion and growth. Precisely because of the decorative aspect, for some people the name derives from the Latin picta, painted, while for others it should be associated with pitta, Greek word indicating the focaccia bread. Whatever its origins, this lovely coexistence of flour, dried fruit and honey tells the fitting fusion of many cultures that, by contaminating themselves, have given life to unique eras. Elaborate in the preparation and with refined taste, pitta ‘nchiusa, also called ‘mpigliata, is now made during Christmas and Easter period.
