Eating in Season in Tuscany
I just had to share--- yesterday was a perfect Tuscan lunch-
The foto above is a fresh burrata cheese, covered in white truffles. Burrata is not Tuscan and this is not a typical way to serve burrata or the white truffles- but I love it.
Batter-fried porcini mushrooms- they need no words.
Grilled porcini mushroom caps and stems. I ADORE FALL
Served with a HUGE 2 kilo Tuscan steak-- not the Florentine t-bone, but a Costata, which I often love more.
We started with a rosso di montalcino and went on to a brunello- then vin santo, passito di pantelleria and grappa--
Bring on Fall!!!
The white truffle festivals in Tuscany are in November, San Miniato and in San Giovanni D'Asso.
Our fabulous lunch was at:
it is just down the street from the Medici chapel
