Something Virgilian remains in this Apulian dish.


Peel, seed and dice half a winter pumpkin. Use the other half for pumpkin soup or pumpkin preserve.

Boil the golden cubes in slightly salted water in a pan, then strain. Put them in an earthenware dish, and make a dressing of garlic, olive oil and white wine vinegar with some chopped leaves of mint. Sprinkle the cubes with fresh grated crumbs, then pour on the dressing, which will be absorbed. Serve cold.
