Food & Wine Tremiti islands

The Apulia cuisine is varied, authentic and rich with its influences from Greek, Spanish and neighbouring traditions. Durham wheat, tomatoes, olive oil, wine, meat and seafood are the basis for nearly all of the region’s authentic dishes. Several of Italy’s most well-known culinary traditions have originated in Apulia including Ciambotto, a mixed fish sauce served over pasta; Zampina, a mix of meat sausage; Seafood Risotto and Ciceri e Tria, strips of fried pasta with chickpeas. Don't miss the locally cooked lobster, the bitterish small onions called lampasciuni and the troccoli. The best selection of sweets includes the delicious zeppole, made with almonds, and the pan drion.
