Together we prepare a full menu and then sit down with family and friends to enjoy the dinner, accompanied by a good glass of Chianti Rufina wine.

Tuscan cuisine, a source of culture

In every country food and drink reflect the history, lifestyle and culture of their inhabitants and allow you to get to know their traditions and customs.
The Tuscan kitchen, in particular, derives from the needs of the local country folk. It is for this reason the dishes are not light even though the ingredients are simple. It is the seasonings that make the dishes very tasty

In the 16th century Florence became the most advanced city in Europe. During this period, nobility including the De' Medici family organised banquets in their wonderful palaces but it was the local country women working in the kitchens who maintained a rapport between the city and the countryside which continued through to the 18th century.
