Making Our Way

We’re not out of the woods yet. After a brilliant, blue sky morning that brought our town’s residents to the piazza to revel in the bright sun, dark clouds rolled in yesterday afternoon with wind and rain aplenty. While winter has been pretty mild in Puglia this year, it isn’t ready to give up its hold, so we’re still dodging rainstorms and scirocco-fueled gusts from the south. Read more

Come Si Fa

Artisanal spaghetti from Benedetto Cavalieri in Maglie, Puglia, is come si fa la pasta in Italy.

We have come to understand that most Italians we know are not particularly burdened by uncertainty. Firm ideas about come si fa (how it’s done) are routinely offered on a staggering range of topics.

Roman to its core, Spaghetti alla Carbonara is full of flavor and as rich as can be.

Let me start by saying that Spaghetti alla Carbonara is not a Pugliese dish. You might find it on a few restaurant menus here, but this decadent bowl of flavorsome pasta belongs irrevocably to the culinary legacy of Rome. So why am I writing about it from my kitchen in Martina Franca? Because Spaghetti alla Carbonara is the guiltiest of guilty pasta pleasures and I have a surfeit of especially fresh eggs from the country calling to me. What could be better than showcasing them in a pasta that depends upon just a few ingredients to make it sing? Read more
