Today it was a beautiful day at the market in Lecce (the one where locals go).

We met all our friends and of course we bought all the fantastic produce from Puglia.

Then, back to the Stile Mediterraneo Cooking School, Cinzia makes fresh hand made orecchiette pasta from Puglia Italy. The real way!

Orecchiette is the most traditional pasta from Puglia. We will show you how to make the best and authentic orecchiette pasta.

To make orecchiette you need durum wheat semolina (never use White flour!) and water, a wooden board and a knife.

You can accompany the orecchiette with tomato sauce which would be the authentic way in the Lecce Salento part of Puglia; or with broccoli rabe, aka cime di rapa, that is a recipe from the Bari area.

What do you think of the video? I hope you understand the Italian accent!
