Traditional recipes carry with them many stories and a unique wealth of experience. The past is not something standing still in time but survives in the present through the recovery of recipes. And when you taste those recipes again, you feel like time has stopped and the memories warm your heart. For younger people, it is a way to tell where they came from and teach that one does not escape from the past, proudly belonging to a history that continues of time. And food tells extraordinarily well about who we were and who we are: like this “cold Cialledda” with Pane di Altamura DOP that looks like a painter’s painting.
