Today I will discuss typical Tuscan food, one of the most beautiful regions of Italy and a proposed gastronomic partnership called Streetfood, founded in 2004 by Massimiliano Ricciarini antheme of proclaiming the route of taste of the region. It invites us to revive the hedonistic art pleasure of eating. Its activities are focused on products in the following regions, Tuscany, Umbria, Marche and Emilia-Romagna.
The concept of quality street food as the proposed Streetfood is, is every day more and more known and more restaurants add it to their menu reinterpreting this beautiful concept of bringing street food to the table.
Several restaurant near Florence have planned activities in this framework such as L´Acquolina in Terranuova Bracciolini, 51 kms from Florence and La Tenda Rossa, with two Michelin stars, located in San Casciano in Val di Pesa to 17 kms.
By December 21, we have a very special proposal in L´osteria Acquolina that presents a doomsday menu, to coincide with this date in the Mayan calendar that says that the world will end on this day. And if this happens what better way to end than eating. The proposal is based on the best local produce in the Aretina Florentine area.
To give you an idea of the foods that can be found your day trips in Florence and Tuscany in general, we recommend that you delight yourself with Tuscan delicacies such as pasta alla Lastra Tortelli del Casentino, typical lampredotto Florence; made of guts and that is usually put on sandwich bread, ideal for a quick stop in the street that we tour. La Porchetta di Monte San Savino, boneless barbecue cooked pork . The Frittelle Savelli di Piazza del Campo in Siena that closely resemble Spanish churros. Fritto misto to cartoccio dei Laghi di Chiusi and Montepulciano with prawns, fried squid and other mollusks. And for dessert, carretto Gelato, the typical ice cream bought from the peddler of street life.
But many more Italian products that we enjoy in our menu or streets can be witnessed in the activities organized by Streetfood, as various kinds of stuffed – or not – pasta, cakes and accompanying bread derivatives filled with meat, sausage and cheese such as gnocco, tigelle, Borlenghi, focaccia, piadina, and of course, pizza, fried or in the finest Neapolitan style. Meat kebab (arrosticini), dishes made from lamb, beef, goat and calf (the famous vitello) and fish dishes such as cod, products made with chickpeas, or other based legumes or chestnuts. The suggestion of accompany drinking is a pleasant Chianti DOC wine .
