Thousands and thousands (tens of thousands? millions?) of nonnas can’t be wrong. They’re the ones rolling and shaping taralli, in their cute little kitchens in Puglia (or Sicily or Napoli or ...). With quick, deft movements they work, talking about how easy they are to make. How good they taste. How they’re the perfect bite with a cold glass of whi...

As the pasta dried in the sun along with the sweatpants, T-shirts and b...

As our rented Alfa Romeo pulled into the gates of Borgo Egnazia, I knew we were in for a fantastic escape. Far away felt the chaotic Autostrade highway that led us from Naples to Fasano, a small seaside town in Italy’s Puglia region, and the only reality that seemed to exist was in front of us, the white manor beckoning my wife and I inside with fl...

At this time of year, in the olive tree-carpeted countryside, delicate light gently illuminates the amber leaves on the trees, and at night the roads are quiet. A huge harvest moon is set against an inky black sky, and in the fields below, tractors lazily make their way home. Not all...
