Tuscan cuisine has always been highly appreciated both in Italy and around the world. The reasons for its success are obvious: high-quality ingredients combined with simple, pleasing, decisive flavours. This book contains a selection of the best traditional dishes, as well as more contemporary recipes having a strong association with their area of origin. All are presented by the author in a simple way, and in line with the most up-to-date dietetic criteria. From classic liver-paté crostini to marinated octopus, from pappardelle with wild boar sauce to chestnut-flour tortelli (unusual in today’s cuisine, but well-rooted in tradition), from “cibrèo di rigaglie” (chicken liver fricassee) to “cacciucco” (fish soup), from “fagioli all’uccelletto” (white beans in tomato sauce) to a country-style frittata, from the exquisite almond biscuits of Prato to tasty pears cooked in red wine (a simple recipe of old times, revived!). A complete recipe book that reappraises the flflavours of the past, and puts them back on our tables with simplicity and good taste.
