Food traditions are a big part of Italian culture so it’s no surprise that eating well is a tradition of our Italy trips! A highlight of a recent trip was a marvelous dinner prepared for us by Chef in Tuscany at our accommodations near Florence.
Graziella and her staff arrived cheerful and efficient; settled us at the kitchen table with a glass of wine, a crostini sampler, prosciutto and local cheeses served with organic honey. From that vantage point we enjoyed watching her and her staff bustle about, chattering and laughing while we peppered them with questions about recipes, inspirations and preparation techniques.
The first course was a heavenly, buttery zucchini risotto with truffle cream.
Sautéed chicken breasts served on a bed of arugula, accompanied by grilled eggplant was a simple and delightful second course
Although we didn’t think we could eat another bite, we managed to find room for freshly made chestnut cake with ricotta mousse light and tasty, and an almond torte served with vin santo.
For this team, no job is too large or too small, whether it’s a cooking class or a gourmet meal for two or an entire wedding party. Chef in Tuscany will travel to your location and can custom tailor to your needs. A family with four young children who stayed in one of our Tuscany properties praised them for rescuing Mom with the preparation
of several meals in advance that could be easily reheated at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. Another group had a cooking lesson for 6. Enjoy a variety of mouth-watering themed menus: Old Chianti Menu, Flavors of Florence, Lands of Siena, Maremma Village. Everything can be custom-tailored to meet your needs or any dietary restrictions.
Reserve now for your feast in Florence and elsewhere in Tuscany.

I am going to traevl to Italy this Summer. I will see Rome, Florence and Venice. I have good traevl guides of Rome and Venice, and Florence in Tuscany books, but this information is great.
The best way to get to know a country is by eating the food the locals do…the culture of food (and wine! 🙂 ) …so there’s no better way to share the knowledge through the food!
