More Than the Next Big Thing:

The Wine and Food of Apulia

 

Apulia is not the next “Florence of the South”. Caciocavallo cheese is not the next burrata. And the grape primitivo is not the next zinfandel. Apulia is more than the next big thing. It is farmland. It is coastland. It is hot days spent drifting between pebble beaches with clear turquoise waters. It is wandering through villages filled with trulli, those whitewashed stone huts with conical roofs that look like houses in a fairy tale. It is olive oil. It is wine. It is an abundance of vegetables grown on the fertile flatlands of the south. It is the hot Mediterranean climate and the cool sea breeze which create the perfect diurnal variation in temperature to produce inky but fresh negroamaro. It is frisella, the double-baked hard bread originally made for long journeys but now enjoyed as the base for a midday snack. Apulia is this: a place where locals stand outside to make orecchiette in the shape of “little ears” the way they have done for generations, sipping rosato from Salento, while watching visitors search for something new to discover. But for the people of Apulia, the next big thing has always been here.
