Description: Local Tonino Benincasa gives Kathy an introduction to the Baroque city of Lecce with a classic car ride. Lecce is famous for its paper mache and we see how nativity scene figures are crafted at Cartapesta Claudio Riso. Pasticiotto is the favorite local pastry and pastry chef Luca Capilungo gives Kathy a pastry lesson. Outside Lecce, in the town of Squinzano, Kathy meets the locals and gets a ride in a tiny Ape car to an olive mill where locals are dancing the pizzico in celebration of the harvest. A local mama teaches Kathy to make orecchiette (pasta) and taralli (biscuits). Alberobello is famous for its classic cone-shaped houses (trulli) and we learn the history of them. In seaside Monopoli, Kathy's friend Antonello Losito introduces her to an old man who makes beautiful model boats.
