Chiara C.

Firenze (FI) - Toscana

Our Cesarina Chiara is a real Florentine! She was born in Florence and she is still living there to this day: «I love my country and my city, too». What more can we say? Florence is so wonderful and also world famous for its traditions, its art and, of course, for its cuisine.

Chiara welcomes her guests in her flat near San Frediano, one of the most authentic Florentine neighborhoods , with an amazing view of the city. Delicious food, sublime wine and a lot of joy: these are the key ingredients of Chiara's recipes.
From Panzanella to grilled Pecorino

Fresh flavours in the traditional Florentine style

To begin this Taste Experience, Chiara serves a traditional antipasto that comes from the region’s strong farming tradition: bruschette, soaked with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and topped with fresh tomatoes.

Next, we have a first course that has ancient and humble origins, the ‘panzanella’. This exquisite dish is the perfect antidote for the hot summer weather, as it is served cool. This simple and refreshing delicacy is made with stale Tuscan bread, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and basil - it’s a feast of flavours that the whole family will enjoy. For the second course, Chiara serves a typical local dish, grilled pecorino cheese accompanied by a fresh vegetable ‘pinzimonio’.

This colourful Taste Experience finishes with a sumptuous dessert, crème pâtissière ‘alla fiorentina’.
