Description

Bread is one of the staples of Tuscan cuisine, and a menu dedicated to Arezzo’s culinary tradition can be no exception. Fiorenza begins this Taste Experience with a platter of bruschette with porcino mushrooms of Casentino and various types of toasted Tuscan bread cooked in a wood oven: tomato and basil, onion and herring and meat and vegetables. This is served with a scrumptious plate of typical cold-cuts: prosciutto, capocollo, coppa (cured pork). In the Summer, the starter ends with panzanella, a rural vegetable salad.

To follow our Cesarina serves a home-made pasta 'al forno' (a baked pasta dish, similar to lasagna) with classic Tuscan sauce. The strips of fresh pasta are dressed with a mix of minced meat, sausage, red wine and vegetables topped with delicious béchamel sauce. The second course is a tasty Tuscan mixed grill. Different cuts of meat (sausages, ribs and Monte San Savino’s “rigatino”, a sort of pancetta typical of this area) are all barbecued for an incredibly succulent dish. This is served with two side dishes: simple cannellini beans “all’uccelletto”, a local recipe, and a mixed salad.

The best way to round off this culinary Experience is on a sweet note. Fiorenza serves Cantucci cookies, served with delicious Vin Santo wine.

Our Cesarina grew up in the splendid Tuscan countryside, among vegetable gardens and farm animals. She inherited her love for the culinary art from her family: together with her mother and grandmother she would prepare magnificent lunches on feast days, and it is thanks to them she now knows all the secrets of traditional cuisine.

Today Fiorenza welcomes us to Arezzo, a unique city of art famous for its antiques and goldsmithing. Our Cesarina lives in a warm and welcoming environment nestled in the Tuscan hills, a short walk from the historical centre of the city. This is where she cultivates her passions: painting, and, of course, cooking. Fiorenza is the safekeeper of all the secrets of the regional traditions, made of simple yet genuine ingredients and of delicious dishes.

The secret of the Cesarina
I love my land, so rich in art and tradition, so beautiful and welcoming.
