From the very north of the province of Brindisi, among the gentle plains that slope gently down to the Adriatic Sea, Gina's traditional cuisine boasts dishes full of opulent flavors and sumptuous aromas; this is certainly the case with the dishes served by Gina for her Taste Experience.
Let’s start with a rich antipasto from the land: 'fave a Nasidde' (fava beans cooked in herbs and then mixed with zucchini or chicory tips), 'checuzze alla poveredde' (fried zucchini with fresh mint and garlic) mint frittata and olive bread. In addition, olive oil 'tarallini' breadsticks and the typical 'friselline' accompanied by pomodori della Regina (queen’s tomatoes). Next come the lianare "painted with ragout”, an unusual pasta shape served with a ragout of little meatballs and colt and lamb chops.
As a second course, Gina will present a roast lamb "tianedda" accompanied by patatoes and lampascioni, a characteristic type of wild onion that grows spontaneously on uncultivated lands.
This Taste Experience is topped off with some typical cookies: soft almond spumetti and robust crunchy croccantini.
