It should be enough to think of the great Tuscan wines, extra-virgin olive oil, Tuscan pecorino cheese or the local pig cinta senese. These products, used in the kitchen of the best Tuscan restaurants, could create those traditional recipes characterizing Tuscan cuisine.
Traditional food, but not only that: in Tuscany you have cooking excellence at all its levels, as you can find the new Michelin Guide 2019, one of the best selections for gastronomy in the world. In fact, in the region there are 36 restaurants with at least one star Michelin.
