Featuring traditional recipes and on-location photography, Sharing Puglia transports you to the sun-kissed Puglia region of the southern coast of Italy. A collection of the quintessential culinary delights of Puglia, the recipes in this cookbook focus on delectable dishes perfect for sharing with friends and family.
Luca Lorusso was born in Corato in Puglia, where his family lived on the edge of town in a house which backed onto fields abundant with olive trees, tomato plants and fruit trees. Luca's love of cooking comes from his 'mamma', who cooked meals for his large family using local and seasonal produce and who encouraged him to see cooking and food as a means to bring together family and friends. Luca now lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he runs a restaurant serving food inspired by Puglia. Running a restaurant is very different from cooking for family and friends, but the essence is the same: use quality ingredients, simple and effective cooking methods, and lots of love and passion.
