Legumes, pasta, vegetables, seafood, fresh fruit, extra-virgin olive oil, a little meat. Once in a while the “Mediterranean dietary model” is not an abstract word but is simply what is served every day on Apulian tables.
Eating habits here do not quite follow trends and dictates of modern nutritionists couldn’t find a better expression: it’s not common to find a cuisine that achieve to combine so efficiently the goodness of its dishes with the principles of a healthy diet.
A simple cuisine but with an intense flavour, a fair balance between marine and rural tradition; on the surface a poor cuisine which actually require a great ability in the execution.
Extra-fresh fish, that Pugliesi love to eat also uncooked, and exquisite vegetables resulting in amazing smelling dishes, thanks also to local olive oil which here is the dressing par excellence.
