Indulge yourself as you get to taste authentic Puglia food and wine at Sapore! Puglia – the “spur” and “heel” of the Italian boot – is one of Europe’s great agricultural areas, its immense plains and rolling hills producing much of Italy’s wine and olive oil, vast quantities of its fruit and vegetables, and most of the hard durum wheat used to make its pasta.
Top 3 reasons you must be craving for Sapore’s Puglia Food & Wine Event: *Chef doesn’t do this often!*
1. Puglia’s typical pasta is orecchiette (“little ears”, after their shape)
2. Meat is usually lamb (agnello), meaning they have good cheeses as well!
3. Lots of sun and robust traditional grape varieties such as primitivo (a close cousin of zinfandel) often make for powerful reds look-out.
