5 cities, 5 incredible experiences as my dad and I traveled through the Apulia Region of Southern Italy. In addition to the food (which alone is reason enough to make the trip) the walking, history, architecture and people make this an adventure to consider for future travel planning.
An 8 hour flight from New York JFK into Rome Leonardo da Vinci airport. A 4 hour train ride southeast into Bari. Another 2 hour train ride further south into Lecce. And a 45 minute cab ride over to Otranto on the Adriatic Sea.
A bit of a trek, but well worth it to explore and eat my way through the Apulia Region of Italy.
Mizuna is a versatile leaf that can be added to a salad such as this or lightly sautéed. I like the shape and texture of the leaves because they have a slight crispness to them. The hearts of palm, goat cheese and artichoke hearts round this dish out nicely.
Citrus and pork go so well together. I like the mix of earthly oregano and tang from the orange juice in this dish.
This is a rich and full bodied soup that is perfect for a chilly fall afternoon. An additional benefit is it’s made in a slow cooker and perfect for people who are busy but want to come home to a delicious meal.
Another tribute to the Union Square Greenmarket for having some of the best ingredients around.
This is a flavorful and easy to make dish that is sure to please friends and family alike.
This is a great soup option for a cool autumn weekend. Preparing in the crock-pot allows all the flavors to really come together in this delicious dish.
The dried Grenada peppers are slightly smoky and have a medium level of heat. The orange juice, garlic and shallots rounds the dish out nicely.
