The traditional food of Puglia is some of Italy’s finest. The perfect Mediterranean holiday fare, it is fresh and healthy and not too heavy. Fish is served more often than meat and is sure to be a highlight of your Puglia holiday, wherever you choose to stay.
Whilst on holiday in Puglia, be sure to sample some of these traditional local dishes.
The main delicacy, which you must try during your holiday in Puglia is also their regional speciality. This is a classic pasta known as orecchiette, which means ‘little ears’ and refers to its delicate shape.
No holiday in Puglia is complete without sampling some of the local Italian wine. Puglia produces 17% of Italy’s wine, more than any other region, and it is delicious.
The most commonly grown variety of grape in the region is Negroamaro, which means ‘black bitter’ (literally translated). It is grown almost exclusively in Puglia and is used to produce some of the best wines in the region – namely Salice Salentino.
The most famous grape in the region, however, is Primitivo. The wines it produces, such as Primitivo di Manduria, are high in alcohol content and possess a full body for a rich flavour. White wines are also produced in the region, but much less so than the classic red. In fact, white wine production in Puglia is very low.
