Enogastronomy in Tuscany

Tuscan enogastronomy: the perfect balance between simplicity and sophistication

The origins of Tuscan wine and food are in the ancient traditions of rural civilisations who have populated these areas for centuries.
This humble background is still evident in the typical regional dishes which represent a perfect balance between simplicity and sophistication. Only genuine, quality ingredients are used and elaborated with great skill to create celebrated dishes enjoyed in elegant restaurants or rustic “trattorias”.

Tuscan enogastronomy is characterised by a strong link with the territory, reflected in the wide variety of local products. The food, the territory, the wines are part of an amazing experience

Tuscan wine and food: from the land and the sea
Tuscan wine and food is characterised by its strong link with the territory, demonstrated in its great variety, reflecting the changing landscapes and seasons. The typical cuisine consists of two main categories: from the “land” and from the “sea”.
 From the land
These typical dishes are the product of the farming population who used simple basic ingredients to create nourishing meals. Today, refined versions of these traditional dishes can be tasted, yet the simplicity and genuineness of the ingredients maintains the same.

Typical products include “chianina” beef, game, salamis, cheeses, tomatoes, beans and cabbage.
