Amazing Appetizers - Home Cookin' and Southern Hospitality - Osteria Famiglia Principe 1968 , Nocera Superiore (Sa)

It's almost impossible not to feel right at home when you sit down at one of the rustic, yet polished tables at Osteria Famiglia 1968 in Nocera Superiore (Sa)  I sat down and and just knew that this would be a lunch that would feature quality local products served with a smile - southern style.
I was right, beginning with the appetizers.

I had two that were just, well, amazing...

Il peperoncino verde friariello..
A green sweet pepper which was lightly sauteed, potato  Robertina style with caciocavallo podolico cheese, and a flavorful slice of pancetta bacon.

Il vasocottura...
This dish, cooked in a vacuum sealed glass jar was presented to me on a plate so that I could see and appreciate all that it had to offer.  Bounty from the Principe family's garden such as basil, eggplant, and tomatoes that they bottle themselves.  Nonno Ernesto's sausage played an important role as well.

We had only just begun...
