Description

Antonella begins this Taste Experience in the Tuscan hills with a fresh and delicious entrée - a plate of appetizing croutons topped with lard and pears, or tomato infused with fresh onion. This tasty starter has roots deep in the local rural culture, and is a homage to the ancient flavors of the Tuscan countryside.

Next, a traditional first course from the Chianti Valley. We are talking about Pennette with herbs, walnuts and Parmesan pesto, fresh pasta in a sauce that marries freshly picked garden herbs with dried fruit.

As a second course our Cesarina trusts in another Tuscan classic: the chicken Cacciatore, "the hunter's way". A simple but irresistable recipe, with a rich sauce. The meat is browned in a saucepan with onion, carrots and celery, before being scattered tomatoes and a splash of red wine... Simple ingredients that take us back to the farming atmosphere. The whole thing is accompanied by delicious filo pastry potatoes, baked and prepared with vegetables freshly picked from the garden. 

To finish, a typical dessert with fresh and delicious flavours, the panna cotta.

Rolling hills embellished by vineyards and olive trees, patches of forest and streams of gushing water. This is the picture postcard scenery that characterizes the Chianti area, a hilly region stretching to the west of the Arno River, and half way between Siena and Florence.

Antonella welcomes us in Greve, a town nestled in the beautiful Tuscan hills. Our Cesarina tells us that this is a small village characterized by a sober but very skillful cuisine. Here, the land’s produce reigns, the legacy of a peasant way of life. Simple but wholesome foods, therefore, able to create very tasty and tempting recipes, reflecting a very flavorful folk cuisine.

The secret of the Cesarina
I love the quiet of the countryside, an endless source of healthy and delicious products.
