Regional Lunch Menu: Tuscany

 

Tuscany

The jewel in the Italian crown Tuscany has so much that we instantly recognise as classically Italian.The birthplace of the Italian renaissance, two of its greatest and most beautiful cities in Sienna and Florence and of course that slightly off center tower in Pisa plus one of the world’s most famous wine regions, Chianti. With all this rich history it is somewhat paradoxical that the beauty of Tuscany’s cuisine lies in its purity and simplicity.
