Alessandra and Ada welcome us into a town that seems to be lost in time, nestled in the stunning Apuane Alps. The two live in Celle di Puccini, an area of Pescaglia noted for its links with the great composer Giacomo Puccini, who spent much of his childhood here - in fact, there is a Puccini museum here in his honour.
Ada and Alessandra have been passionate cooks for their entire lives, and they love to celebrate their local traditional recipes that have been handed down through the generations.
The secret of the Cesarina
"Our grandmothers taught us how to cook traditional dishes, and we have guarded their recipes ever since."
