Description

The journey through the Tuscan hinterland starts with an inviting chopping board of cheeses, which our Cesarina accompanies with honey and onion preserve. The sweetness of the onion is a perfect accompaniment to any cheese and provides a truly inviting start to the Taste Experience. 

For the main course, Antonella serves 'pappa al pomodoro' with basil, a typical pasta dish that is deeply buried in Tuscan history. This recipe was originally intended to use up stale bread from the days before, and is a simple but classic combination of tomatoes, garlic and basil. 

For the second course, eggplant 'alla parmigiana' with salvastrella (a variety of aniseed). This is accompanied by a zucchini carpaccio with mint citronette, for a fresh and Summery side dish. 

For dessert, we finish off with the unbeatable simplicity of 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.
