About Tuscan Food

Tuscany is the region in Italy that provides exceptional cuisine. Tuscany is popular for the local produce and the meat. It is also popular for the seasonal foods and simplicity. The Tuscan food is as per the Italian idea of poor cooking. The concept start with the idea of making simple meals which are inexpensive and which can be easily prepared in large quantity. Tuscan food does not have any complicated seasonings or the elaborate creations as they are not required. Tuscan food is made with very fresh and fine quality ingredients that can bring the natural flavors in every dish irrespective of it being simple or not. Here are the dishes one should try in Tuscan cuisine.

Panzanella

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.

Ribolita

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.

Torta di ceci

It is a street food of Lovirno. Torta di celli is thin savory cake which is crispy outside and softer inside. It is made using chickpea flour. It is a vegan and gluten free dish. Torta can be consumed after sprinkling black pepper on it.

Acquacotta

Acquacotta is a vegetable soup that is enriched using packed egg. This dish can be added with pecorino grating for some additional taste. It is an amazing soup that is made with very less and inexpensive veggies.

Pappa al Pomodoro

Pappa is the baby food in Italy. It is something very soft and easier to eat. Pappa al Pomodoro is the bread tomato soup. It is the dish that varies from one two to another but always contain the major three ingredients, which are Tuscan olive oil, juicy tomatoes and stale bread. It is a very delicious Tuscan food one should try.

Castagnaccio

It is a unique kind of chestnut cake which is made with chestnut flour and water. It is the dessert that has its origin from mountains of Tuscany where there are so many chestnut trees. The sweetness of the dish is from the flour, pine nuts and Sultanas. Cake is poured with olive oil and some rosemary too sprinkled on it.

Potato tortelli

This is the dish which is very delicious buts simple and is served with the game meat sauce and was one that used to be served at the hunting area of Medici.

The different Tuscan food varieties are indeed worth a try if one is visiting Florence, for the incredible flavors it offers with simple ingredients.

    • Trip to Italy

      Listing the cons here first. On one of the days we were to reach the hotel at 8am after an early morning flight. When we reached, we were told that we had to wait till 2pm since the check in time is from 2pm and they wouldn't be able to provide us a room till that time. So we had to roam nearby for 6 hours just to pass the time. In one of the sightseeing trips (to Cinque Terre, which comprises of 5 islands) we were given the tickets of the tour for the same. But when we started the tour we came to know that our ticket was only for the round trip bus tickets. From the drop point we had to take take trains/boats on our own to explore all the islands. Overall, we travelled to 5 cities in the entire trip and the experience was good as planned, except a couple of the hotels booked were not upto the mark, and the rooms were very small, almost the size of the bed with no space to open our luggage. Except for these, every other thing was planned nicely and we had a great time during our trip!

The good - great booking for day trips and guided tours, Special mention to Ishita as she was always on her toes to help us in all our queries,.during the stay the hotel in Paris was very small, room size was like just the size of the bed but one thing best about the hotel was its location as it was walkable from the centre of Paris.Thanks to the team assisting us at Duniya Safariand Travel Triangle.

      We had booked my honeymoon trip to France and Italy through Hub Holidays. Despite being a package tour, we had the complete independence to chose my itinerary. The hotels provided were just awesome, especially the ones is Venice and Rome. Our hotel location in Nice and Paris was also awesome. The hotel staff in Rome was so courteous that they upgraded us for a complete apartment with full amenities. To my amazement, it also had a terrace with it. Speaking about Hub Holidays, I have never had a better travel agency doing job for me. They were quick and generous while responding to any queries or problems. Keep up the good work guys. Also, I dropped my passport in Disneyland Paris and Hub Holidays helped me in getting it back and made me feel relaxed even though I thought I have lost it. Yeeshu and Prashant were too good.

      I 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.

      Memorable Holidays left no stone unturned to make our holiday memorable for life. From the right advice while drafting the itinerary to last minute bookings since our visas were delayed, the support was very good. Krishna recommended the right tours and the hotels selected had excellent location. Had a lot of fun. Italy was wonderful and we felt that it deserves a vacation on its own with a minimum of 3 days in Rome and a visit to the Amalfi Coast
