  1. Yes, Ostuni is beautiful, I bet the hills kept you fit though 🙂

    Also the trulli are amazing, but it’s very touristy around Alberobello now. Every second trullo seems to be a souvenir shop!

    I’ll have to dig out some more artichoke recipes, you seem to love them as much as I do


    PS I’ve just got around to sorting out my blodroll. I’ve added you site under the food links category

  2. I had my friend check out your site. She knows how much I love Alberobello and always bring her back a souvenior, un pensiero, from there.
    Mio cognato si ha affitato un trullo per noi a Locorotondo. Clearly, Ostuni is also a place of which I have very many fond memories.

    I placed your site as a link on my blogroll at my site. Risotto al carcioffi is also a favorite.

    Are you Italian? A Student? How did you choose Bari? My nephew’s both go to the University in Bari, their last name is Aversa.

  3. Thanks a lot. I’m having so much fun here in Bari 🙂 Do you have any favourite dishes that I haven’t done yet? I’m always looking for new recipes to try.

    I’ll definitely check out your blog


  4. Quanta Bella il suo sito!
    Your site is fabuolous. Where did you find the custom header of Alberobello, my favorite city in the world..no joke!! Your recipe for tagliatelle e carciofi sono buonissimi! A favorite dish of mine I use to live in Brindisi and my husband is from Bari. Puglia is a favorite region.
