Refined selection of local wines


To begin this Taste Experience dedicated to Tuscan flavours, Maria Luisa begins with a simple and delicious starter of local bruschette, accompanied by prosciutto and salami. She finishes off the starter with pasta fried in flax seed oil. 

For the first course, Maria Luisa serves gnudi, which are spinach gnocchi with a vegetable filling and a seasonal sauce. To follow, a rural second course of frittata trippata, 'triped omelette', which marries the flavour of eggs, cheese, onions and tomatoes. The dish is accompanied by distinctively flavoured fried cauliflower, a perfect side dish for the omelette. 

Last but not least, dessert. Maria Luisa prepares 'scaramiglie al Vin Santo', which are small biscuits similar to Tuscan cantucci, almond biscotti, which work perfectly with the traditional dessert wine. She also serves ciambellini, soft and morish old-fashioned donuts with a hint of anise.

Maria Luisa was born and raised in the splendid Tuscan countryside. Her childhood was spent in close contact with nature and following farm-life rhythms. Her grandfather teaches her to grow vegetables when she is still a little girl, and shortly after she starts helping her grandmother in the kitchen. Cooking is a real passion that our Cesarina has nurtured over the years, in a journey along her territory’s traditions that still continues today.

We can taste these intense and refined flavours in the fascinating rural setting around Maria Luisa’s house. In fact, our cook welcomes us to Scansano, a small town in the Grosseto province. In between its sweet hills we can taste the typical Tuscan cuisine recipes, full of cold-cuts and cheeses.

The secret of the Cesarina
I spent my childhood in the countryside with my grandparents and I owe them all that I have learnt: my grandmother taught me to cook, whilst my grandfather to grow a vegetable garden.
