Remarks

Highlights

  • Included in Price

    • All buffet breakfasts and 6 evening meals included.Italy’s most famous export is probably its cuisine and the traditional dishes of Tuscany are the most influential and revered.The region’s food is based on /cucina povera/, ‘poor/peasant cookery’, a rural cuisine based on available natural ingredients: olive oil, unsalted bread, pulses and vegetables, wild mushroom or porcini, and salt-cured meats such as /salame/ and prosciutto. In particular, Tuscan olive oil is renowned for its quality and is the most important ingredient in the region’s cookery. You will find it in almost every dish - as a salad dressing, poured over vegetables and into soups and even as a replacement for butter onbread (very nice with a sprinkling of salt!).
