Salento food porn – Food and wine tours -10% TTI discount

Every summer I travel down to Salento, Puglia to spend a couple of weeks in the sun, by the sea and eating some of the most incredible rustic food that southern Italy has to offer. However, this summer I decided to take part in a food and wine tour. I wanted a better insight in how  the food is produced and the wonderful people behind it all.

Antonluca Iasi, the brains behind Salento food porn  hosts and runs a selection of food tours showcasing the best in Puglian culinary delights, especially in his beloved Salento while sharing his wealth of incredible food knowledge.

What I loved most was the level of diversity on these food tours. From wine tasting to cheese making, visiting a 100 year old bakery to making pasta with local Nonnas and other food fun.

I couldn’t recommend these tours enough. Not only do you get to taste some of the most delicious foods that Salento, Puglia has to offer, it really is an unforgettable experience. You get to meet the incredible people who are behind creating these foods and experiences. They really give you an insight into their working lives and culture which inevitably makes you fall in love with the region even more. Antonluca has an incredible roster of people to choose from and he is happy to customise tours depending on what you’re looking for.
