When it’s possible I prefer to use fresh and organic food, from km zero samll farmers. Below some samples of my Tuscan menu:

tagliatelle with fresh tomato sauce and basil;
– potatoes tortelli with fresh pesto;
– potatoes gnocchi with mushrooms sauce;
– tomato bread soup (“pappa al pomodoro“);
lasagne with ragù;
– polpette;
– meat rolls with cheese and ham;
– spezzatino or “peposo“;
– meat nests with artichoke;
– hunter chicken with black olives;
– “peperonata” (vegetable stew);
tiramisù;
– crostata with season fruits;
– cream with “cat’s tongues” biscuits;
and many others…

Cooking class can be be organized in a nice Villa b&b in Florence or directly to your place in Florence.

Prices:
– from 2 up to 4 persons 95,00 € per person;

A journey through the “terracotta” road

Posted By : admin/ 0 0

This tour will take us on the “terracotta” roads on the enchanting Chianti hills, to discover artisans and products (amphorae, vases, pitchers, bricks, tiles, etc.) famous world-wide.

with terracotta road – De Gustibus Chianti wine Tour, it will be possible, on request, to assist the artisans while they are working or to organize a workshop to become the protagonist and learn some tricks on how to be a terracotta master artisan.

We will reach Greve in Chianti, one of the most famous village in the Chianti Classico area. After a short visit of the village we will stop at one of our small producers, who will entertain you with his stories while enjoying a typical Tuscan lunch accompanied by wine and products from his land. After lunch we will reach another Medieval village for a short walk (and maybe a coffee break). The town of Castellina in Chianti, of Etruscan origin, is located at the crossroads of the major valleys of this area (Arbia, Elsa and Pesa).

On our way back, we will stop at another small producer to enjoy a second wine-tasting.
