When staying at Borgo Egnazia with my family and dear friends of ours, we attended an Apulian festival on our final night that was inspired by an authentic Puglia tradition honoring the ancient art of preparing "tomato sauce,” which is then used throughout the year, and holding tight the homemade recipe in memory of grandmothers and rural workers. The traditional event was held in the main piazza of the hotel and all the hotel’s guests attended. There was live music, dancing, singing, ladies making orecchiette and tomato sauce from scratch, entertainment for the kids and adults, and more food and wine than you could even imagine. It felt like we were at a wedding with 400 friends! Everyone had the best time that night.
