Food tasting in Bari
The cuisine is heavily-based on fish and a strong bond with the produce and ancient traditions of this land.
Pasta, in its most original shapes, is made with simple ingredients such as water, flour and salt and is the king of main courses. Handcrafted orecchiette, cavatelli and fricelli have the right shape and consistency to absorb the tasty seasonings based on vegetables, fish or meat.
The artisanship of bakers here is evident in the preparation of pizza, focaccia, spicy taralli and the famous Altamura bread, protected by its DOP label and excellent just as a side dish, delicious when seasoned with extra-virgin olive oil Terra di Bari DOP and garnished with the famous Apulian vegetables and greens.
Among the fruits of the earth are the barattiere, small vegetables to eat raw in salads, table grapes, sweet and juicy, and sweet Termite olives from Bitetto, seasoned with salt, vinegar, olive oil, spices and natural herbs.
Aleatico, Gioia del Colle, Gravina and Locorotondo add the quality of excellent DOC wines to the flavors of the local traditional cuisine.
