Hi from Marzia!
"My house borders the 'di bandella' nature reserve, where the animals of the forest still live. It is a house on one floor, without architectural barriers, recently renovated: modern and equipped kitchen, guest reception room, oven wood, eat-in kitchen on the veranda outside, where we have the Pratomagno massif in the background. I have a large vegetable garden, where I try to stock up on products for the winter and lots of farm animals. When the time comes I go in search of herbs spontaneous, in order to make the filling for ravioli, and I dedicate myself to mushroom picking."
- Crostini with black cabbage and livers
- Ravioli filled with wild herbs
- Roast 'nana' with rocchini (duck with celery meatballs, typical dish of the Valdarno Aretino area)
- Marzia was such a wonderful cook to teach us about Tuscan food and lifestyle, and her whole family were excellent hosts! They went far and beyond welcoming us into their home. The food we cooked and enjoyed, including extra snacks and drinks Marzia provided, was all delicious. This was one of the most special experiences of our trip to Italy. Grazie Marzia!
