33KM

logo_ver“Benvenuti a questo personale progetto lavorativo, che esula dal mio impegno professionale e quotidiano ma che é stato e sarà un modo un po’ particolare di ritrovare le origini, perché dopo aver vissuto un po’ di anni  lontana da casa, per studiare, lavorare, conoscere gente nuova, arricchirmi di esperienze, ho capito che in realtà, il mio bisogno era di un ricongiungimento con casa mia, la mia famiglia, il mio paese.

E se nella mia storia famigliare c’è sempre stato l’amore per la terra, per l’agricoltura, per il cibo buono e i prodotti di buona qualità, se i miei genitori mi hanno sempre trasmesso il grande valore di tutto quello che in Puglia abbiamo, se le gite domenicali di quando eravamo bambini erano sempre volte a scoprire posti nuovi e prelibatezze culinarie, alla ricerca del dettaglio che fa la differenza in cucina… é stato inevitabile ad un certo punto sentir forte la necessità di far conoscere ufficialmente a tutti quella che è la mia terra, in primis per sentirla più vicina a me, e poi perché so che la gente rimarrà piacevolmente colpita da quello che si può sempre trovare al sud.. Da qui la mia curiosità e voglia di scoprire piccoli artigiani del cibo, che con la loro esperienza hanno saputo creare diavolerie culinarie che se vorrete potrete assaporare, regalare, sperimentare in ricette nuove.

Benvenuti su 33km.it ! “
