You will the opportunity to try the following specialties (according to the availability of raw ingredients, season and the chef’s choices): Cured meats and local cheeses from Tuscany: a traditional Florencian aperitivo, tasting local meats, cheeses and toasted breads, along with a glass of Chianti, in the framework of one of the oldest and most famous wine bar of the city. Potatoes tortelli: a recipe from Mugello, the hill country area around Florence. Rectangular and stuffed with potatoes, parmesan cheese, walnuts, and salt.

They are absolutely a must try! Coccoli: marbles of deep-fried dough, served with prosciutto crudo (a very tasty ham from Tuscany) and stracchino cheese (savory and creamy cheese). They are the best example of Florence street food: a unique delicacy. Pappa al pomodoro: a farmers’ traditional dish, wisely prepared in the same way since generations in one of the most typical and lively trattorias in Florence. Ribollita: one cannot leave Florence without having tried this traditional soup made with bread and vegetables. Eating is believing!

    Our guide was excellent! She knew where to take us for the best food experience in Florence. We had a great time and ate some wonderful treats. A lot of food, we were so full at the end of the tour. Skip dinner or you won’t be able to enjoy all there is to offer. I would do this again or recommend it to anyone going to Florence. A must do!
