Food plays a huge role in the lives of Italians, specially in the south in Puglia, commitment to tradition, local products and common preparation of meals, takes on a different meaning here.

We would like to pass on to you a part of this tradition and encourage everyone to pay more attention to food, where it comes from, its preparation and celebration.
