The captivating region of Tuscany, full of artistic cities and villages nestled in rolling hills, offers moments of almost mystical contemplation, moments that can only be enhanced savoring the bounty of this generous and tranquil region. Vegetables, legumes, meat and fish, these are the ingredients used in preparing simple, but never dull recipes, such as pappa al pomodoro or panzanella, as well as more complex but not overly worked preparations, such as cac-ciagione or classic crostini (which uses common cuts of meat), cacciucco or ribollita with black cabbage. Tuscan cuisine uses plenty of salt and pepper to enhance the flavors, so much so that Tuscan bread, in compensation, contains no salt at all.

Fabulously Delicious!! 🎉
Dusica created a warm and welcoming environment in her home. She is a lively and informative host - not to mention a fabulous cook!!
A Simply Amazing Evening!
What a wonderful meal Chiara prepared and shared with us during our visit to her home. We had heard about the Le Cesarine program shortly before our trip to Italy (and how fortunate we were). [...] Particularly, if Florence is on your itinerary, we recommend an evening with our wonderful host, Chiara! Thank you Chiara and Le Cesarine!
Experience of a lifetime! 😍
We will not be able to say enough nice things about our dinner experience. [...] We will always book an experience like this when we return. There are not enough kind words, truly!
