Te la Uliata Feast – Caprarica di Lecce
26-29 July 2018, Feast dedicated to the traditional Apulian bread Music and “pizzica”
Caprarica di Lecce, in Puglia (Apulia), is celebrating summer with the 8th edition of the Te la Uliata Feast, from Thursday 26 July to Sunday 29th July 2018.
“Uliata” is a “Puccia” (a particular type of bread) made with Salento’s secular black olives. This Apulian gastronomic specialty is widely appreciated by locals and tourists alike, as shown by the increasing numbers of visitors that stop by the Te la Uliata Feast to taste its different interpretations of the Uliata (as it often happens with traditional food, every family had its own recipe).
The Te la Uliata Feast is the perfect occasion to taste other regional specialties, as well: “Pittule” (small balls of fried dough), aubergines, peppers, “Turcinieddhri” (grilled lamb offal rolls).
This year, the Puccia can be eaten with different fillings, too.
Everything, of course, will be paired with amazing Apulian wine made by local producers.
Dessert lovers will be delighted to know that “Pasticciotto leccese” (a custard-stuffed pastry baked in the oven) and the traditional “Spumone salentino” (layers of chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla ice-cream on a Marsala or liquor-soaked sponge cake base) are also served at the Feast.
Traditional music, “pizzica” (a traditional Apulian dance), and group dancing animate the evenings.
The Feast is organized by the ActionAid association.
