A Foodie’s Paradise Foggia in Puglia, Italy
The Puglia region is a very special place, and not just because of its rich history or incredible food (which I will, of course, be highlighting!). It’s special because it’s where I met my husband 23 years ago.
Let’s start with that fun story! I had been traveling south from Rimini by car, intending to visit Sicily. In a time before Google Maps and GPS, I accidentally ended up on the opposite coast. (Though it now seems that it was fate’s fault.) I met my husband in a restaurant in Torre a Mare, Bari. I fell for him immediately after noticing two things during this dinner with friends. First, he kindly prepared a spread of raw seashells for me (not just Oysters, but all kinds of raw seafood as it’s a Bari delicatessen). And second, the way he sweetly interacted with genuine care and attentiveness to a little boy a friend had brought together. I know it may sound crazy, but something just clicked. So much so that he asked me to marry him, and I was engaged 24 hours later.
