This week we want to bring you in the Puglia region, and more precisely in Cisternino town, the heart of Itria Valley. We recently had the pleasure of spending a few hours together with Giorgio and Giuseppe, the owners of Il Cucco Cucina Enoteca, eating delectable food and sipping a glass (or more :-)) of “Nero di Troia” red wine gently suggested by Walkingwine.

Our dear friends Claudia and Chiara shared this tasty, robust and traditional recipe from Umbria, a region of central Italy with us.
The name of this dish comes from Norcia – Nursia, a charming town known for one of the best sausages in Italy, for the black truffle, for Castelluccio di Norcia lentils, for the beautiful scenery of unspoiled nature and historical monuments.
If you happen to be there don’t forget to visit a norcineria, a grocery shop where you can buy or taste pork cured meat made by expert local butchers.

When I was a child, in my house in Apulia, Sunday wasn’t a respectable Sunday without a succulent dish of pasta al ragù di brasciole. Despite the name the pasta sauce does not contain the brasciole (the meat roll-ups); these are served separately after the pasta (as a secondo piatto in Italian), always accompanied by some good wine, like the well known Salice Salentino or Negroamaro (which at the time I was of course not allowed to drink :))
Thanks to Fabio, a long time friend, for giving us advices about this brasciole dish.
