The Osteria "Fra due Terre" was the only eating house in Troia that the Dom, who has a keen nose for these things, thought looked interesting (actually, it was just about the only ....).  Here's the team - from the right - Maria-Neve, Giuseppe (joint proprietors) and Andreia (who is Portuguese and also speaks excellent English).

 

On the left below is Francesco - Giuseppe's brother - who dropped in for a bite to eat and had his photo taken as well.  And as can be seen it was the day before Haloween.  The family produces wine and also does agriturismo (complete with a piccolo zoo of animale da cortile near Troia). 

 

 

 

And for a good "country lunch" there was:

 

A small sea shell shaped pasta (cavatelli) with fagiole (white beans) finocchio (fennel) and cotenna di miale (small square pieces of pork skin) ... the pasta is cooked in the bean juice and the fennel and pork skin added.  All the components are the same order of  small "chunk" size.  There is plenty of liquid in the final product, in fact one could also make it as a soup.

 

Salsiccia alla Contadina (sausage in the way of the peasant) - thin sausages cut into approx 5cm-ish strips, red peppers of similar domensionality, black olives ... all colourfully braised together.

 

A special preparation for the Dom of a tipico dolci di Novembre - vincotto with pomegranate seeds and pulp and other unidentified small things - the taste being like a strong liquid Christmas cake.

 

Many of their dishes are described (in Italian) on their website.
