Focaccia from Bari- the Traditional Recipe

Crispy on the outside, soft in the inside and full of ripe tomatoes focaccia from Bari is one of my most wanted delicacy from Puglia. Living in Copenhagen makes it hard to find a slice of this baked bread around the city. So I challenged my self to prepare an excellent version of it, and finally I’ve reached it :-).

Like the Baresi, (people from Bari) doeat a slide of this focaccia any time of the day and on any occasion. To fully enjoy its goodness, cut a slice of focaccia in half and stuff it with some mortadella.

I have to say thanks to the funny, brilliant and nice Maria to telling me the essential tips for making these delicious focaccia.

Crispy Pan-Cooked Pasta Apulian Traditional Pasta: Spaghetti all’Assassina – Nero di Troia Red Wine

Spaghetti all’assassina (killer spaghetti), is a signature dish from Bari, Puglia.
It becomes à la mode during the 70s.
This dish is so popular that in Bari even exists a “Spaghetti all’assassina Accademy”, with members that respect religiously the way this pasta is made.
The technique behind is called “risottatura“, so the pasta is not boiled but is cooked directly in the pan, like a risotto, adding the liquid (in this case the tomato sauce) little by little, until it is absorbed and the pasta is cooked.
The pasta cooks high heat, until it caramelizes and scorches: spaghetti must be crunchy but not burnt! And they are really spicy to, with a lot of peperoncino.
So try the recipe that follows here and become an honorary barese.
