Cesarina Giulia’s menu begins with a humble and delicious Tuscan dish, panzanella croccante, a recipe which was orgininally created to make use of stale bread, combining it with delicate preparation and flavoursome vegetables for a sumptuous antipasto.

Next, we have a legume soup, a classic preparation from the region’s deeply-rooted farming tradition. For the second course, Giulia serves ‘Peposa alla fornacina’, a dish that dates back to the times of Brunelleschi in the 1300s. This rich beef stew is made with red wine and pepper, and is served with fresh garden salad.

To finish, Giulia serves a typical dessert: mascarpone cream with Cantucci biscuits in Vin Santo.

Florence, one of the world’s most enchanting cities, an icon of art and culture. This is where our Cesarina Giulia welcomes us into her home. Giulia is originally from the northern region of Liguria, but has been living in Florence for many years.
Giulia has been a passionate cook since she was a young girl, from her university days, when she opened a little locale to serve up a taste of traditional cuisine, before gaining further experience in the catering and creative cooking world. Our Cesarina has fallen in love with Florence’s cuines, with its simple but flavoursome dishes rooted in popular cuisine. Giulia welcomes us into her beautiful home, complete with a charming terrace that looks out over the church of Saint Ambrogio.
