Foods of Tuscany

25 Jun

Be it simple or spectacular, the food in Cortona always pleases. Whether eating in a bar, a trattoria, or a restaurant, the ingredients are fresh and used in an array of creative dishes.

From salumi to steak

End with a touch of espresso and some food for thought:

Anonymous:
La cucina di un popolo è la sola esatta testimonianza della sua civiltà.
(The cuisine of a country is the only exact attestation of its civilization.)

Virginia Wolf:
Uno non può pensare bene, amare bene, dormire bene, se non ha mangiato bene.
(One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one hasn’t eaten well.)

A toast to good eating!

Ciao,

Judy
