Sixth programme in the series with Claudia Roden
Italy All the main influences of the Mediterranean are found in the cooking of southern Italy. In Sicily, the love of sweet things, the sugar and vinegar in savoury dishes and the currants and pinenuts in sauces for pasta, reflect the early Arab presence.
Around Naples and Salerno, it's tomatoes and pasta, pizza and mozzarella.
In Puglia, the heel of Italy, there is a feeling of ancient times and of isolation. Here the food is at its most basic. Assistant producer CLARE BRIGSTOCKE
