The menu of the festival is really full of Salento specialty from grain such as homemade pasta , crispy bruschetta, the Friselle , pasticciotto and pittulle , little cakes fried unmistakable taste .
The curious explorers traditions have something to rejoice because in the village of Merine you can taste local food and wine or many other products such as beans and chicory , chopped horse , sausage and much more.
But what party would be without any good music ? So off to the rhythms from the drums and the famous pizzica & Taranta .. One of the best local band “Alla Bua” will delight you and let you dance under the stars of Merine square. What else can we tell you ? Come & Try !!!
