Apulian Cusine

Apulian cuisine is characterized by the importance given to raw materials, both land and sea. The region has always valued the precision in the kitchen with a focus on the exaltation rather than on the alteration of the flavors of the ingredients used for the products; this allows you to find all the favorite vegetables in any season – turnips (to name one), green cabbage thistle peppers eggplant artichokes etc, not only those that are nearby but also more exotic ones such as those grown on site or at higher altitudes where it is warm enough so that they do not spoil before falling below the harvest quotas due to too hot climatic conditions.

Traditional dishes

Restaurant in Puglia

This kitchen has a peculiarity that distinguishes it from other kitchens, and that of offering different dishes depending on the seasons. For example: in spring, when vegetables are at their mildest (and most delicious) point of the season, preference is given to these foods instead of red meats such as beef or pork; while in the colder autumn months you will see families cooking large pots on the fire using hardy roots like potatoes along with fat cuts like duck breast fillets.

The most typical dish is orecchiette with horse meat sauce, whose recipe is now widespread in all cookbooks. Among the other traditional dishes worthy of note are those based on turnip tops and turnip leaf; among them the Chicory with the puree of broad beans, which binds this territory to Mediterranean cuisine, such as the Risotto alla Cavatellicons cozzze or the Fritters of barley semolina – PatateRiceEggs – also called “Chips”.
