Puglia, the heel of Italy’s iconic ‘boot’ is the next exciting stop on our culinary tour of Italy. The birthplace of many unique Italian foods including burrata cheese and orecchiette pasta, it is also known for producing more olive oil than any other region in Italy.

Head Chef Bernardo Capasso has put together a special menu which shows off his favourite dishes from the region with each course served with a perfectly paired wine which will compliment your dish.

courgette, mint, garlic, olive oil

In addition to some great Italian dishes, your hosts Alessia and Giuseppe shall also be keeping your glasses topped up with a tasty selection of red and white matching wines. Let us bring Puglia to you, and to our little Italian corner of West Malling.
