Florentine cuisine is one of the oldest and most accomplished in the world. It has always been and remains both sustainable and ethical, showing respect and gratitude to the land and for what it provides us.
Florentine cuisine was loved by all, from the famous artists and architects of the Renaissance, to noblemen and common folk alike. Its influence is as far reaching. A notable mention must go to Caterina de’ Medici, who together with her Florentine chefs and confectioners moved to France in 1533, significantly impacting the French culinary landscape.
Florentine cuisine is much more than one famous dish, like the Bistecca Fiorentina. It is something inherent, ingrained in who we are, it is a vital part of our culture. It starts with the most basic ingredients like Tuscan bread and fragrant Chianti olive oil and finishes with the most elaborate dishes that are garnished with a pinch of Florentine wit!
