Puglia: Frugality & Abundance

Puglia, at the heel, highlights the desirable qualities of Italian life that draws us all to this amazing country.  It is scattered with Baroque architecture, pristine wilderness and wonderful beaches, charming villages, olive and citrus groves, underground caves and Roman ruins.

Puglia’s agricultural heritage and enviable coasts make it the perfect place for great food.  Ironically, this is “cucina povera,” though rich in produce and ingredients.  Here there is a straightforward and practical attitude towards food.  Its cooks are creative and have an enormous capacity of making something out of nothing.
