I ended the evening at the close by I Salentini restaurant.
To my taste, some dishes were excellent, some less appealing.
I started with a very salty capocollo,  a nice palette of Salento oil&vinegar marinated vegetables (loooved the artichokes and the sun dried tomatoes) IMG_7595 copyfollowed by a disappointingly overcooked pasta (the super nice owner Antonio suspected a probable kitchen faux pas ).
The hit of the night? Great paparine, spontaneous green growing in the olive trees territory, stirred the traditional way, with celline, minuscule black olives, chilly, garlic and Salento olive oil.IMG_7597 copyFinally a rich and delicious pasticciotto, a typical cake from Lecce and its surrounding areas, made with a sweet crust and pastry cream pasticciottoand a great white wine Moscato Salento Estella.IMG_7593 copy Now…curious about paparine?
