Puglia is one of my favorite Italian regions for deep food immersion and it would be a shame to squander even a single culinary opportunity, so don't cringe when I tell you: eat pezzetti and involtini di cavallu. Both are braised horse. Just do it. While on the quest for Puglia's treats (equine and otherwise), [...]

In spite of the countless fish dishes that populate Roman menus, Rome’s not much of a fish city. It wasn’t until the mid-20th century, with the proliferation of refrigeration and deep freezing, that fish caught in the Tyrrhenian, Adriatic, Mediterranean Seas began making their way to the Italian capital’s market stalls and […]
