Get a taste for Puglia

INFORMATION DESK: YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY OUR PANEL OF EXPERTS
After visiting Italy regularly over the past 35 years, we have at last discovered the little-known (by foreigners) region of Puglia. Two and three-star hotels in Lecce and Lucera have provided our accommodation but we would now like to take advantage of the wonderful local produce by cooking our own meals. What is a good source of information for self- catering accommodation?
