Cesarina Giulia offers an experience of the very roots of Florence’s culinary tradition. Her menu opens with one of Tuscany’s classic antipasti, toasted bread (crostini) topped with chicken livers, which is accompanied by crostini topped with cavolo nero.

Next, we have a first course that brings together the humble and flavoursome ingredients of the ‘cucina povera’, a hearty spelt and bean soup, that is a delight for all seasons. For the second course, we have another of Tuscany’s iconic delicacies, roast rork loin rolled in ‘lardellata’, pork rind, which results in a crispy outer layer that reveals perfectly tender pork inside - simply delicious. This is accompanied by a side of field greens sautéed in garlic and chili, and a platter of roast potatoes with onion and pancetta.

To round off the experience, a sweet taste of Tuscany. Giulia prepares a delicate mascarpone cream with Cantucci biscuits soaked in Vin Santo wine.

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.
