Spring in Puglia
Ian writes: I was invited down to Puglia by the local Chamber of Commerce who is promoting the area around Foggia. On the way down I passed through two beautiful regions of Italy I’d not visited before: Abruzzo and Molise. Spring was in definitely in the air and the olive groves looked stunning.
On the last night of my stay there was a dinner, and as the ‘celebrity chef’ was introduced, I was sure I recognised him…
And it turned out I did. I mentioned to the organisers that I knew him, and I was ushered into the kitchens. Mino was in the middle of creating a wonderful meal for more than 300 people, but he still found the time to greet me with open arms (he also is the owner of one of our properties further to the south near Ostuni). They’re a friendly bunch down in Puglia.
Upon leaving Foggia I headed further down south to Ostuni to catch up with Chris and Martina and visit potential new properties – two of which will shortly be on the main site.
The hospitality I received in Foggia was as wonderful, so many thanks to the organisers and the friends I made there. I’ll be back soon…
