From the TV Show: Trabocchi in Abruzzo

In the Abruzzo episode of the second season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy enjoys fresh seafood in an old fishing hut turned restaurant.

Trabocchi were traditionally stilted fishing huts along the coast of Abruzzo between the coastal towns of Ortano and Vasto. Many have now found new life as restaurants serving the freshest seafood imaginable – caught just a few feet away. Chef Luca taught Kathy the ropes at Trabocco Cungarelle and he’s happy to cook for you in this incredibly unique setting when you visit the coastal resort of Vasto. For more information, visit:
