More than just wines, Puglia offers many agricultural products, among which extra virgin olive oil plays a key role. The local cuisine is often defined as peasant food, “cucina povera” because of the strong relationship with the rural culture.
Influenced by the ancient past, when a woman’s day was divided between the harvest and the daily management of the house, restaurant owners have rescued and enhanced quick and very simple traditional recipes like “pancotto” (made of stale bread) and “cecamariti” (based on leftover ingredients).

The inland is a triumph of horse, pig, wild boar, and podolian cow, usually grilled in traditional wood ovens and served straight from the butcher shops (called “ready stove”) in the Murgia area. Among the meats, the delicious Capocollo of Martina Franca (cured pork meat) is a standout. Also renowned are cheese and dairy products like: mozzarella of Gioia del Colle, burratina of Andria, podolian caciocavallo of Gargano, the precious Canestrato of Corato an pecorino of Maglie.
