Skewers of mutton diced into cubes and cooked over a coal fire underneath the Italian sun. Could there actually be anything better? This Abruzzese classic is a dish that absolutely must be tried on any trip to Abruzzo. Predominantly found in the Pescara province there are typically two types of arrosticini to choose from, the homemade type and the premade type. Homemade consists of cubes of mutton skewered between pieces of fat which add flavour and help keep the meat tender.
