Bruschetta, risotto, pappardelle pasta, fillet & pizza – prepared with fresh porcini mushrooms – are some of the most interesting dishes that one can experience with my food tours & activities. Tuscany offers not only great wines, fabulous cured meats, fresh pasta, Chianina steak and lots of gorgeous destinations to visit, but is also famous for its fresh & huge-sized porcini mushrooms. Tradition in Tuscany is to get up early in the morning after days of rain and do a mushroom hunt on wooded hills. Experts never reveal to others the correct places where they find fresh mushrooms (only from Father to children or to really good friends); they often just come back with a basket full & sometimes only with a few Porcini mushrooms. The authentic cuisine of Tuscany & Italy is well known for its bruschetta, pasta, risotto, fillet with mushrooms, and most of all for fried Porcini, which one absolutely has to taste while visiting Tuscany. There are lots of types of mushrooms in Tuscany but the best & most tasty one is Mister Porcino, that Chefs & traditional cooks in restaurants, farmhouses, cooking classes, private villas prepare for tourists & visitors who come to live the Tuscan dream of Sun, Art, Wine & Food. I go crazy for pizza with fresh Porcini and Buffalo mozzarella, and fillet with fresh mushrooms, obviously paired with lots of wines from the region – trust me it is a must taste.
