A matter of taste

You are invited to taste a piece of my gastronomic roots, one of the most original street treats of Bari that I love to prepare and to eat: Panzerotto.

A small version of the calzone (or fried pizza) made with a softer dough. It can be filled with whatever you like, but the original version is the most requested: mozzarella and tomatoes

You'll instantly fall in love, because you can't go wrong with a panzerotto. Check the following link to see when the next Panzerotti day will happen.

Collaboration with Boavista

Meeting people with some driven idea on sustainability it's beautiful. Boavista uses recycled frying oil to produce effective solid dish soap.

I am very happy to announce that from March 2023, the oil we use for frying our beautiful panzerotti, when exhausted, is donated to Flavia from Boavista. In this way, we help a bit, being actively part of the solution and not the pollution.

Please visit their Instagram page Boavistacircular to learn more and be part of the change.
