The Apulian cuisine is appreciated all over the world and this is already known. But the proof is the victory of three Apulian chef in the Greatest Chef China, a Chinese contest in very similar to Masterchef. The Michelin starred lady chef Maria Cicorella (Pashà restaurant, Conversano), chef Lucio Mele from Manfredonia (Sale Grosso in Bologna) and Nicola Savino from Conversano (Savì restaurant) have won the contest finale that took place at Boscolo in Milan.
Here are the dishes of the team captained by Maria Cicorella: mashed beans with fondant red onion and monkfish wrapped in bacon; roulade with stracciatella with coppa of Martina Franca, tempura anchovies and balsamic vinegar; barley soup, mussels and razor clams; roasted sea bream with fennel puree, pickled artichokes and almond oil; panzerotto stuffed with smoked cheese, candied tomatoes and fennel pesto and pineapple ravioli stuffed with ricotta and coffee granita.
The moment of glory was accompanied by a lot of emotion, a hint of emotion and a huge applause. All deserved.
