Experience Foggia in Puglia, Italy
Though Foggia is a lesser-known city in Puglia, it is a hidden gem for foodies. My husband, whose family is originally from Naples, grew up in Foggia. That’s why I’ve always had a strong connection to this town. We have an apartment in the area, and we love to visit mainly during springtime and the end of summer to indulge in great food and hit the beaches, which are about a half-hour away. (If you’re wondering, where in the world is Kathrin now, I’m currently writing to you from this very city!)
Though our main home has been in Munich, Germany, and recently changed to Lugano, Switzerland (a story for another day, I promise!), high-quality dining has always been a pricey experience and indulgent treat. Here in Foggia, food feels like the land of plenty. It is abundant in quantity and quality everywhere you turn. (This is contrary to many countries and cities I’ve visited where you have to really search to find gourmet restaurants.) Plus, that bill you get after a huge multi-course meal here makes it even more enjoyable!
