You know those kind of things that you try and its like where have you been all my life? How did i survive for so long without this? Calabrian chilis are absolutely that for me. Calabrian’s are something i’ve always heard of but never tried. Actually, when i tried them i didn’t realize they were Calabrian for about another year. When i first tried Calabrian chilis i was in Frankfurt, Germany at a really cool pizza shop. On the table they had peppers in oils and that’s were this love story started. After getting back from Germany i obsessed over this pizza, thought about it constantly. Even regularly looked them up for ANY sort of indication of what kind of peppers they were. No, it didn’t occur to me to ask at the time. Probably because i had a couple pints with my pizza. Anyways, after enough complaining and reminiscing my dad figured out what they were. That’s when life changed. Calabrians are actually pretty hard to come by here surprisingly. They are crazy expensive here (but worth it) . I’m actually thinking about just growing them myself. They add incredible flavor and a really nice punch from the heat to just about anything. Once you try them on a pizza you’ll ditch the red pepper flakes! Try them out and let me know what you think!

Yes! They are such a pain to find actually. But they are guaranteed to change the way you eat pizza.
I’ve never heard of these chilis but I will def keep my eye out for them. I hope I can try one day!
Thank you so much!

Haha so so SO true.
Stein or not they were all giants lol!!!
Yep been there, when I got back I felt my body was made of more beer than water. Its hard to resist a giant stein from the tap.
Total game changer. If you can find them I would definitely try them. I wouldn’t steer you wrong.
I missed out a lot culinarily… I drank back then and tried more beer than food.
Is it?? Don’t tell me that! I had a lot of pizza, sausage and pork knuckle there. Now I feel like I missed out!
I have never heard of this chili before but now I’m totally interested!
Wow!! I guess Frankfurt schnitzel sucks lol!!! It’s much better in Munich!
I loved Germany, I was soooo excited to have schnitzel. The first day we arrived I had it and avoided it the rest of the trip. It was so metallic tasting! I can still taste it just thinking about it. When I go again I’m determined to have a schnitzel redo.
She can even rock potatoes…
Awesome that you got to experience Germany! Maybe you could share some schnitzel recipes?
