Tuscan Cuisine

The Tuscan cuisine is an ancient and skilled cuisine made up of tasty ingredients and never excessively elaborate; in fact the dominant character of our cooking is certainly its simplicity. Simplicity however that is more apparent than real, in that each dish is made up of well balanced portions, never inspired by haste, but by patient attention to the choice and the amalgamation of the ingredients.
Even the classical French cuisine, which everyone admires, for the most part has its origins in Firenze, transported by the chefs who followed the French court of Caterina de'Medici in the 1500s.
The excellence of Tuscan cooking is recognised everywhere, in so much as that in many cases it is counted among the first in the world.
