Here are the dishes one should try in Tuscan cuisine.
Throwing stake bread away is a sin in Tuscan. The bread leftovers are used for making summer bread salad with veggies like onion, cucumbers, and tomatoes and seasoned with vinegar and olive oil. Tuna and capers are required in a richer version of Panzanella.
This is another dish that makes use of left over breads. It is a dish with bean and kale soul which is served with the toasted bread. On the second day this soup gets cooked again in pan with some olive this giving it the name ribolita that means boiled twice.

Trip to EuropeI went to France, Switzerland and Italy. I got a very competitive pricing from Hubholiday. They provided very nice pre, post and on trip support. Thanks Yeeshu and Prashant for your efforts to make my trip memorable. They even provided support for information not part of package such as best option to buy sim. I really liked hop in hop off bus in France and Italy, it was a great way to visit major tourist places in less time in a cost effective manner. Swiss pass in Switzerland was also great I could travel anywhere in Switzerland via it. Tip for first time travelers - make sure you know all information in detail, less vegetarian options are there specially in Switzerland so you can buy fruits, chips, etc from there or bring from India, be well before time on famous monuments, make sure to take care of your stuff to avoid any issues on the trip.
