Brindisi is an important port in the Adriatic sea and since the Ancient age it has been known as “The door to the East”.
In Brindisi, life revolves entirely around the sea, and this is reflected also in its cuisine, which is full of humble but hearty dishes.
Brindisi’s main ingredients come from the heart of the Mediterranean Sea and are mixed together with ingredients from the fields. The result is a vast array of delicious recipes such as: Orecchiette with asparagus and little shrimps, mackerel with seasonal vegetables.
If you want to discover the authentic flavours of Brindisi, you should join a dining experience at a local family home.
