A great history is always accompanied by a great gastronomic traditions. This is because Troia, together with the variegatissimo panorama of monuments and historical buildings of relief, offers an assembly of typical dishes of absolute interest. It starts by scaldatelli or taralli, typical bakery products, familiar to all the towns of Puglia, flavored with olive oil, fennel seeds, pepper and other spices and ingredients according to the recipe jealously guarded from each of the bakers citizens. Unfailing The Pancotto, a soup that speaks of the earth and of the peasant tradition, an embrace of flavors, recipe triumphant to the cuisine of the poor, which has now become a bulwark of our tables. The pancotto is widespread throughout the Puglia, but is in the province of Foggia that is declined in different ways from country to country. In Troy, to the excellent stale bread and potatoes, you add wild vegetables of the season (from chard with turnips, passing for catalogne and chicory), garlic, bay leaf and chili pepper, generously seasoned with extra virgin olive oil local. This is flanked by a skill for the most refined palates, cooked cooked, a traditional tripe soup from prolonged cooking, a gentle fire, seasoned with celery, carrot, onion and tomato, celebrated even in a festival to theme organised usually during the second week of August. Finally, how can we not mention the Nero di Troia wine, an autochthonous grapes, whose production is a wine with an intense red that fades to black. As the rest of the story of Troia, even the origins of this vine is forgiveness halfway between history and legend. Unfailing the myth that seeks brought in captained by part of the Greek hero Diomedes, while for others it seems it was a wine welcome to Federico II. After various vicissitudes, crops previously reduced in favor of varieties with higher yield, are now returning in vogue with the Nero di Troia in purity, resulting in a wine valuable from typical ruby red color with hints of liquorice and raspberry.
