Regional Special: Toscana, Italy
I Maccheroni’s Tuesday Italian Regional Special: Toscana, Italy.
Toscana – aka Tuscany
A region located in the centre of Italy with its capital being Florence is known for its landscapes, traditions and history.
Famous landmarks include the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Florence Cathedral and the Uffizi Gallery. What’s even more exciting though, yep you guessed it, the Food!
Tuscans are crazy for their bread so think freshly sliced Tuscan bread dipped in Italian olive oil or garlic and tomato on a charred slice of bread (also known as bruschetta).
When the bread isn’t fresh anymore, stale bread makes it to other meals such as Ribolita, a kale and bean soup served with toasted bread or a traditional comfort tomato bread soup, known as Pappa al Pomodoro.
So if you have a love for bread, Tuscany’s traditional Italian food won’t disappoint you!
Join I Maccheroni for a Tuesday Night Special where the best of Toscana’s food and wine is celebrated.
Enjoy a three-course meal for $39 pp and a glass of matching wine for only $8.
