Apuliens aperitivo, Meet Med event at Docksta Havet Base Camp

"Dalla Puglia alla Svezia con amore"

The unforgettable experience of Apuliens Aperitivo Provsmakning has been led by Roberto Carvutto, founder and owner of Apuliens Smak AB. He also shared with us the path in which took him to select these Pugliese specialities by letting us experience the heart of his experiences related to food and people of this land. One of the most enriched in history and way point for people and cultures to meet.

"My name is Roberto Carvutto, I'm Italian and I live in Örnsköldsvik in northern Sweden.

Apulia is the region of southern Italy where I was born and grew up, my hometown is Gioia del Colle.

Food is a central aspect of life in Apulia. The soil is fertile and olive trees, tomatoes, oranges, figs and mushroom grow here. Local specialities include focaccia, orecchiette and taralli. Add frutti di mare, mozzarella, vino primitivo, extra virgin olive oil and fresh vegetables - and lunch is served!

For centuries stories have been told in the region, with focus on the land and its products, the work, the sun, the sea, the colors and scents of the South. Like every corner of Italy, Apulia is full of art, culture and tradition handed down from generation to generation, especially around the food.

Starting from the plots of these age-old stories, Apuliens Smak aims to bring the best of my region to your home: we offer high quality products from small companies devoted to the care of the details, and we give you a quality and uniqueness that large retailers cannot provide.

The companies selected by Apuliens Smak are the result of a long and laborious research. In every product you will find the smells and flavors of Apulia, and the passion of those who committed their whole lives to the enhancement of this land.

Through Apuliens Smak I want to share the flavours of my beloved Apulia with you, your family and your friends.

Buon appetito!"


Roberto Carvutto

"Jag som driver Apuliens Smak heter Roberto Carvutto och kommer ursprungligen från Gioia del Colle i Apulien, södra Italien. År 2011 tog jag och min svenska fru ett nytt, spännande steg då vi flyttade till Sverige och Örnsköldsvik.

I Apulien, precis som i övriga Italien, har maten en central plats. Marken är bördig och här växer allt från oliver och tomater till apelsiner, fikon och svamp. Focaccia, orecchiette och taralli är några av specialitéerna. Lägg därtill skaldjur, mozzarella, primitivo-vin, olivolja och färska grönsaker - och lunchen är serverad.
