Nancy Harmon Jenkins opens the windows onto a culinary world that's new to most of us-the kitchens and countryside of Puglia. This is a perfectly reasonable book, it provides some very good recipes, but it lacks the background, history and flavor of Puglia. My wife's family came from Puglia, San Severo to be specific, and she makes wonderful Puglian dishes.

She is the author of many books, the latest of which is a collaboration with her daughter, Chef Sara Jenkins: The Four Seasons of Pasta (Avery Books, October 2015). Also in 2015 she published Virgin Territory: Exploring the World of Olive Oil (Houghton Mifflin, February 2015).

In Flavors of Puglia, author Nancy Harmon Jenkins provides a compelling description of both the region and the wonderful food of this area at the heel of Italy. In fat, although this is primarily a 'cookbook' it is also the sort of book that you can sit down and read cover to cover in a quest to find out much more about this emerging food region. Each recipe is prefaced by a description of either where the recipe came from or the cultural context for the recipe.

Dazzling combinations of colorful, earthy vegetables.  Comforting soups with beans, grains, and fragrant herbs.  Simple seafood dishes prepared with fish and shellfish straight from the sea.  Pasta adorned with fresh, flavorful sauces.  Food that embraces the humble abundance of Puglia, from olive groves, wheatfields, vineyards, gardens, and the blue waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas.  In this first-ever cookbook devoted to the foods of this bountiful region, located at the heel of the Italian boot, Nancy Harmon Jenkins combines her masterful knowledge of the Mediterranean with the recipes and traditions of Pugliese home cooks.Featuring more than 100 recipes, for every course from the antipasti to dessert, Flavors of Puglia introduces American home cooks to the aromas and flavors of the cuisine of Puglia.  Taking a culinary tour of this remarkable region, Jenkins offers recipes for classic Pugliese dishes including tiedda, a casserole made with mussels, potatoes, tomatoes, and zucchini; and orecchiette, Puglia's famous ear-shaped pasta, tossed with pungent broccoli rabe and dressed with a sprightly mix of oil, garlic, and red pepper.  Other recipes include panzerotti, deep-fried tarts filled with onion-olive stuffing or a spicy pork filling; stewed black olives served with chunks of country-style bread for sopping up herb-scented olive oil; calzone, a two-crusted pizza with olives, leeks, and a hint of anchovy; and fresh fish and shellfish served on their own, in casseroles, or seafood stews.Jenkins offers graceful descriptions of Puglia's landscape and introduces readers to local fishermen, bakers, pastamakers, olive oil producers, and winemakers who produce the best food the region has to offer.  A detailed section for travelers offers restaurant and hotel suggestions and provides a list of dishes and food products that are specialties of the region.  A resource guide and extensive notes on choosing ingredients round out this splendid cookbook, which will win readers over to this charming and, as yet, undiscovered region of Italy.

My mother, acknowledged by all to be a great cook, was of Pugliese descent. The recipes in the this book really ring true. They also are healthy, without claiming to be "natural" or "organic."

Well written and illustrated. Out of print, but if you can get a used copy, grab it.

I loved the research that went into this book. Thank you to the author for years of work on the Mediterranean Diet.

So much more than a cookbook, Flavors of Puglia puts the reader in the landscape and the population of the heel of the boot of Italy. Good reading as well as terrific recipes.

Fabulouse book ....I gave it to my daughter as a gift and who is a cook.

Always looking for good italian cookbooks. This one fits the bill. And, because we spent a week in Puglia at a cooking school, it reminds us of many of the lessons we learned.

This is a perfectly reasonable book, it provides some very good recipes, but it lacks the background, history and flavor of Puglia. My wife's family came from Puglia, San Severo to be specific, and she makes wonderful Puglian dishes. This was a gift for her, and although it provided some additional recipes, it did not do much to place them in the context of the culture or suggest variations that she might try on her own.
