One week on, it is clear that my usual restraint with food has flown through the trulli window, and I'm indulging as much in cooking as I am in eating, and drinking! I can confidently say that by the time I come back, I should look a little bit more like a beached whale.
So far, we've cooked grilled sea bass with herbs, octopus salad (my personal favourite), courgette flower fritters, bresaola and mozzarella salad... not to mention the desserts: tiramisu, fig and almond tart, lemon biscuits. We're sticking to Italian, with the only exception being the Moroccan crepes for breakfast that my father brought from Casablanca, a little treat from our cook back home.
Drink has been mainly local wine, but also sparkling water and yesterday's special watermelon and mint juice, a secret recipe of my little sister's... Bon appetit!
