Want to enjoy an evening of fine wine, good food and intimate atmosphere? Then join Torciano restaurants for a special night of Tuscany wine tasting and deliciously comforting Italian bites! In this experience, you will be guided on a tasting journey of speciality wines from Italy, each accompanied by a delicious food pairing.
Like all Italian cuisine, our Tuscan cooking is based upon using the most fresh and simple ingredients of the season including many legumes, cheeses, vegetables, and fruits. Typical dishes are based upon what Tuscans find fresh and local at the market that week, making them often very easy to prepare and involving few ingredients. Although the food may be simple, it is rich in flavor, very hearty and quite filling. All meals are served accompanied by the regional bread: a white, plain, unsalted loaf.
Also stemming from history, many Tuscan dishes were invented based on the principle of “waste not” such as ribollita – a tuscan vegetable and bread soup – and pappa al pomodoro – a tomato and bread soup.
Of course, we cannot talk about Tuscan cuisine and forget to mention the famous steak called “bistecca alla fiorentina”. The Tuscan steak, which comes from a special cow breed, the Chianina, is served very rare alongside roasted potatoes and beans.
