Pictures are always a little more difficult on the road, but I tried my best given the lighting….here are the cooking adventures. Puglia is the home of burrata, so of course I had to make some burrata and tomato crostini. I also did some mozzarella and tomato crostini because these little bocconcini were so delicious. Both had local olive oil and salt on top, and they were absolutely amazing.
I saw some really beautiful zucchini with the blossoms still attached at the little supermarket, so I combined those with some fresh langoustines from the fish guy and some onion and fettuccine.
And of course, Puglia is known for orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe. So I had to have some while there, along with some artichokes (which were not a great success because I couldn’t get them to cook through after being on the stove for an hour and a half!). For the orecchiette recipe, stay tuned because I have my official version later this week!
