oh my GOSH. i am SO ready to go here and learn (and eat)!!


What a great post -- and gorgeous pictures! Why didn't I find you before now????


What a terrific post! And how totally packed with info - m'dear you have outdone yourself. Puglia is my dream destination. How I would love to visit and meet the women who still make their traditional foods. I do not think you would be able to pry me away. In fact, the women in my family will be getting together in 1 week for an afternoon of orecchiette making! We find these pasta making afternoons to be a time to laugh, talk, trade stories, catch up and generally be reminded of how much we love each other and how much we treasure one another's company. All that and keeping the traditions alive too. Life can be very food, indeed. We love it. Thank you for a grand collection of things Pugliese!


I had an aunt who made that "onion pie" as we used to call it. (One side of the family is from Puglia.) It was really delicious!

The photo at the top of the post is truly a work of art, by the way. Looks like a painting by an old master…


Wandering Educators - You will love it, I'm sure.

Asproulla - Thank you for the kind compliment. I'm glad you found me and thanks for commenting!

Adri - You always make me blush with your very kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the post. I agree that cooking together is a great bonding experience.

Frank - Now onion pie will be my English translation for Focaccia Salentina. Thank you for the compliment on the first photo of Mamma Giulia. She and the sunlight get all the credit for the photo.
