The Food and Cuisine of Apulia (Puglia)

The plains and gentle hills of Apulia provide plenty of farmland for grains, wine grapes and olives for oil.  The rolling plains make for an ideal place to raise grazing animals, so kid and lamb are enjoyed frequently in Apulian cuisine.  Pork, beef and poultry supplement these to give a wide selection of meats to choose from.  Lamb meat or offal may be skewered and seasoned with bay leaves, salt pork and pecorino cheese before grilling over coals.  Lamb, olives and sliced lampasciuoli are also wrapped in foil and baked to make agnello al cartoccio.
