If you are looking to expand your travels to an undiscovered destination in Italy, be sure to read this New York Times’ piece on Francis Ford Coppola’s Palazzo Margherita in Bernalda, in the Basilicata region of Italy.
Basilicata is just above the arch of the boot, with moutainous terrain that has made communications difficult until modern times. Basilicata has been one of Italy’s least developed provinces. This is a region for true travelers as it possesses few resorts and fine accommodations. The cooking of Basilicata is bold and vibrant with outstanding produce, tasty cheeses, a wonderful variety of fresh and dried pastas—and outstanding cured meats. Visit the Italian Tourism web site for more on this fascinating region.
From Basilicata, we have Bochicchio, with a new shipment coming soon!
