3 FOOD TO TASTE IN TUSCANY

Are you thinking about taking a vacation in Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, Viareggio, Isola d'Elba?

In Tuscany, on the coasts, prevail dishes based on fish as the Caciucco: famous Livornese fish soup with mussels. 

Traditional Tuscan food
Cacciucco alla Livornese

Caciucco livornese is a fish soup typical of the Livorno area.
The fishermen who used the unsold fish of the day to make this soup. (Redfish red and black, capon / gurnard, octopus, cuttlefish, dogfish, cicadas or shrimp, eel, mullet ...).
In addition to fresh fish the characteristic is the strong use of garlic and chili pepper and toasted Tuscan bread. But you can also find less "strong tasty" versions (on request).

The cuisine of the Tuscan inland towns is based of vegetarian dishes but that does not disdain meat including the famous Florentine steak: the meat is cut from the loin of beef.
True Fiorentina: a steak at least 4 centimeters thick and 800 grams of weight. This is a high cut including bone, to cook on the grill.

Another speciality is the bread which the Florentines do not add salt in the dough.
It is added to many savory dishes such as bruschetta: the bread is toasted with different sauces or is rubbed with fresh garlic and soaked in olive oil. I love it. My friends have a little Frantoio (oil mill).
