Gourmet Tours at Accoutrement, Italy, Puglia 2020

A Luxurious Experience

Join us for 7 nights in our luxury accommodation set in the gentle Salento countryside, surrounded by centuries-old olive groves and woods. The area is dotted with charming rural towns such as Taurisano, Ugento, Miggiano and Specchia, in each of which you will find local markets, restaurants, some lovely architecture and a sense of the simple life. Every day will be an exciting experience. The baroque jewel of Lecce is close and is a great day out for anyone interested in Italian art and architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries. We will wander and explore these delightful villages.

Burrata Cheese, Olive Oil and Wines on a Gourmet Tour with Accoutrement, Mosman

During our stay we will visit artisan producers of wine, olive oil and cheese. Puglia is the home of Burrata, the fresh Italian cow milk cheese (occasionally buffalo milk) made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture.

If Italy is the largest producer of wine in the world, it is largely thanks to Puglia, which produces more than any other Italian region, about 17% of the total!

Gourmet Tours June 2020 at Accoutrement, Mosman

We will visit Alberobello and explore the famous cone-shaped Trulli Houses. A trullo (plural, trulli) is a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Trulli generally were constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or, as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural labourers. In the town of Alberobello whole districts contain dense concentrations of trulli. The golden age of trulli was the nineteenth century, especially its final decades, which were marked by the development of wine growing. After visiting local markets we will return to the villa and lots of fun cooking classic dishes of this region with Giovanni and Alessandro.(Tour is subject to change.)
