Is there any one who does not like Italian cuisine ??? I LOVE IT. Every time I taste something new it is another adventure for me through the immense variety of Italian food, and there are lots of ways to cook it depending where you are and what you have. Speaking mostly of Tuscany – where I live – there are at least a few dishes you must know and taste, like Bistecca alla Fiorentina famous Tuscan T-bone steak, Panzanella summer bread salad, Pappa al pomodoro fresh tomato soup, Ribollita winter vegetables soup, Crostini neri toasted bread with chicken liver patè, Lardo di Colonnata the famous pork lard and many many other delicious dishes, obviously mostly of them dressed with Extra virgin olive oil of Tuscany. Once here you can really enjoy and figure out that it is so simple to cook and prepare really tasty dishes without necessarily being a Chef. Never forget to pair all these things with really good wines from the different wine regions of Tuscany. There are different places where you can sit and have nice meals with great views, either in high terraces or in ancient cellars with an amazing and warm atmosphere that only Tuscany can offer, together with its wines and productions. Pages and pages can be filled writing about Tuscan cuisine, but it is always the best way to see and taste directly on site. You are welcome to be part of it with me, and together we can have great moments with a lot of fun in one of my private food tours in Pienza, Cortona, Siena … just to name a few!
