Last year when Rachael went to Italy, she spent 3 weeks eating and drinking her way through Salento in Puglia - Italy's "boot heel". Needless to say, Puglia holds a very special place in her heart. We hope you'll join us for this Salentino Pugliese dinner! Gather your friends and family and join us on Sunday, July 30 for a family-style feast. Service starts at 6pm, but we will have seatings available by reservation between 6pm - 8pm. There will also be live music from 6pm - 9pm.
Puglia is a long gorgeous peninsula surrounded by the Adriatic and Ionian Seas and their beautiful beaches with olive groves and lush farm lands running through the center. Throughout the countryside, you find cities lined with narrow cobblestone streets, ancient ruins and ornate churches.
Salento is famous for it's cucina povera (peasant food) and simple preparations of fresh ingredients. Imagine plenty of seafood, olive oil, rustic pastas, hearty legumes, ripe vegetables and rich red wines.
