Dinner is made all the more delicious when you can admire the stunning hills of Siena as you eat... What could be better than a beautiful view and with a starter of bruschette topped with stuffed garden vegetables? This is followed by a delicate chickpea purée, a traditional dish that is delicately scented by freshly picked rosemary from the huge bushes in the farmhouse's herb garden.
For the first course, we have a classic Tuscan dish. Angela serves 'pici', a thick pasta similar to spaghetti in shape. This pasta is stretched out by hand and left to rest in corn flour, before being seasoned with Pecorino cheese and black pepper, resulting in an irresistably intense sauce.
The Taste Experience continues with a skewer of tender liver, sausage, pancetta and a cut of local pork. As a side dish, Angela serves a sizzling pan of crispy roast potatoes and vegetables. Alternatively, she can prepare a vegetable pie and a delicious Vannuccio salad.
The dinner rounds off with a rich dessert; a basket of fresh fruit and a traditional chestnut cake called Castagnaccio, served with delicious sweet ricotta cheese balls, or little strawberry cups in ricotta sauce. There are also fantastic caramellised apples or peaches in wine. Now that's a Tuscan feast to remember!
