In Abruzzo the stuffed sandwich is the “Stozza”.
A term that derives from the peasant tradition, when the Stozza was the mid-morning snack during the break from farmwork.
We have recovered some of the traditional recipes and combined them with the more modern ones based on the seasonality of the raw materials.
Once the sandwiches are prepared, we wrap them in paper and place them in the basket, just like our grandparents did. 💕

And we come to the Abruzzo regional champions. Fish burger, veggie burger, organic wines, craft beers, plastic free are the guiding principles of the format launched just a year ago on the Costa dei Trabocchi by Federica Primofiore and Andrea Ottaviano, young people from Abruzzo who returned home after several years of experience abroad with the common idea of putting oneself to the test in one's own place and experiencing what has been learned, in particular the art of fusion cuisine.
This is how the two founding members present themselves in the “Da Matti” social profile.
Federica, after graduating in psychology, joins Andrea in London and immediately starts working in a Thai company where she has the opportunity to grow professionally. She stayed there for three years and then moved to the largest British companies known all over the world such as Annabel's in Mayfair. He also has the opportunity to work for Corbin and King and for Amazonico also in Mayfair.
Andrea had the opportunity to work for Caprice Holding and, as mentioned, worked in many kitchens such as Austrian, French, English, Irish and Italian.
Then there is the sous chef Claudia, almost 18 years of experience in the kitchen, supervises the work of her colleagues and reports everything to the head cook, takes care of the preparation of sandwiches, both those already on the menu, and of testing new sandwiches. .
