So it is no wonder that Tuscany is the favorite holiday destination of many tourists every year. These come from all over the world, just to appreciate all the many aspects that make it enchanting and unforgettable, including the traditional flavors of the products of Tuscan gastronomy.

Tradition at the table

Not only Florentine steaks and Tuscan pecorino cheeses with different maturations.

In fact, Tuscany can count on a truly complete food and wine heritage, which also includes fine wines and sausages characteristic of this territory.

The tradition has its roots in the dishes of the so-called poor cuisine characterized by a few genuine ingredients and capable of sublimating the flavors in truly unique recipes.

Here is a list of the best known and most popular products.

Finocchiona

It is a salami based on pork, fennel seeds and red wine, widespread throughout the Tuscan territory and served as an appetizer.

Pappardelle

Perfect if accompanied by rich meat sauce or game sauces, pappardelle are a pasta shape that resembles tagliatelle, but which is much wider and lends itself perfectly to collecting and holding the sauce.

Florentine steak

What, in many cases, is the first recipe that comes to mind when thinking of Florence is a high-cut beef steak, which includes the bone. Cooking involves embers or grill, while the ideal cooking is rare.

Chickpeas flour pie

It is a very popular street food, also called chickpea cake, in Livorno. Reminiscent of Ligurian farinata, it is low and crunchy and is flavored with a generous grind of black pepper, before using it to fill an elongated sandwich called francesino.

Lampredotto

Another very popular street food, similar to tripe, but dark in color because it is made with an abomasum stomach. It turns out soft and is served in a sandwich in the kiosks.

Ugly but good

Rustic and tasty sweets, which are made with almonds and hazelnuts, as well as egg whites and icing sugar.

Cantucci and vin santo

These sweets are so famous that they were even considered by the Accademia della Crusca, which in 1961 defined them as a “sliced ​​biscuit, made of fine flour, with sugar and egg white”. A glass of vin santo is a must for their tasting.

Panforte

Today widespread throughout Italy, this spicy and fragrant delight can be enjoyed at Christmas time. Its recipe involves the use of dried fruit and candied fruit, resulting in a compact and slightly moist dessert.

Alchermes

It is a sweet liqueur characterized by a truly peculiar pink color, two qualities that have made it indispensable for the preparation of numerous pastry products. These include the so-called chocolate peaches, which are actually Tuscan Easter sweets.
