Apulia is a long region, spanning the length and breadth of Italy’s heel, and reaching on up the calf; from Foggia in the north to Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca at the country’s southern tip. The food too stretches from fertile inland soils to the rich waters of this part of the Med. Here, we sample from the whole of the region; dried broad bean puree, cicoria and baked peppers from the earth, delicate white fleshed bream from the rocky coastline and Tette delle Monache from the nunneries that speckle the land.
For your meal you will need:
A suitably sized oven tray – big enough for a good sized fish
