You’ve been dying for a fabulous getaway, but the whole tedious task called “work” keeps getting in the way. In the meantime, treat yourself to some flavors from a foreign land. Now until the 20th, Il Fornaio treats you to the flavors of Puglia, Italy.
The heel of the boot, this fertile land is rife with tomatoes, grapes, artichokes, lettuce, fennel, peppers, onions and olives. Its coastal landscape abounds with fish, and the land provides grazing fields full of cattle, pigs and sheep — resulting in simple, fresh cuisine.
Discover classic Puglian dishes like Fazzoletti con Cozze e Fagioli, fresh pasta handkerchiefs with mussels, beans and tomatoes; Cavatelli con Braciolette, rolled pork with small pasta shells, which combines the customarily separate pasta and meat courses into one savory dish; and Orecchiette con Cime di Rapa, the famed “little ear” pasta with rapini, anchovies and garlic.
