Puglia and the Mediterranean Diet

Puglia…a land known for its “food culture” based on the Mediterranean Diet

The humble food in Puglia, often referred to as “cucina povera” (poor cuisine) is celebrated as one of the best examples of the healthy Mediterranean Diet, UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Many dishes are prepared with simple products, those of this land: durum wheat, tomatoes, vegetables, cereals, legumes and extra virgin olive oil. In the past, there were considered poor dishes, but today they are a treasure of taste and wellness, able to conquer the most sophisticated gourmand.

Apulian food is authentic and surprising because it’s still based on recipes that haven’t changed in many generations!

Puglia is one of the biggest producers of extra virgin olive oil in Italy!

The landscape of Puglia is rich in monumental olive trees probably dating back thousand years. These trees have large and grotesque trunks that resemble sculptures.
With more than 60 millions olive trees, Puglia is today the main producer of extra virgin olive oil in Italy.
