Description

Anna Clelia will serve up a feast of flavours her home on her fabulous terrace, which has a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside of Puglia. For the starter, she serves a delicious zucchini tartlet, followed by a fricassée of green beans in a pecorino cheese basket and eggplant rolls… And this is only the beginning!

For the first course, Anna Clelia will delight you with her fresh pasta ‘fagottino’, which combines creamy ricotta cheese and mild caciocavallo cheese with the sweetness of cherry tomato sauce and basil. For the second course, a joint of beef infused with the subtle tones of ‘Susumaniello’, or ‘Pimitivo’ which are local wines from Brindisi. This is accompanied by a side of wild chicory. 

We finish with a refreshing dessert, home made gelato with forest fruits, accompanied by Anna’s homemade citrus Rosolio liqueur.

Anna Clelia’s house is in Locorotondo, where her large terrace looks out over the wonderful Itria Valley. This village, located in the Apulian hinterland, is small and pretty, full of white houses with pointed roofs. Locorotondo is in a strategic position,  just halfway to the Adriatic sea and the Ionian sea and the bucolic Apulian countryside.

«My family is really big and we have always considered lunch and dinner to be moments as almost sacred». For our Cesarina, welcoming new guests into her flat and serving them local treats is a real celebration of flavours!
