Food & Drink In Tuscany

One of the highlights of a holiday to Tuscany is the wonderful Tuscan food and drink. The locals favour simplicity, as they feel their ingredients and the strong flavours they use are enough to make their dishes stand out.

Don’t expect to find dishes covered in fancy sauces, the Tuscan food speaks for itself. The olive oil in this region is some of the best in the world. Tuscany is also known for the truffles it produces, which are usually sprinkled over pasta dishes. Then of course there’s the wine, which has a prestigious reputation around the world.

Stay in an authentic Tuscan villa and you can cook some of your own dishes using delicious, freshly grown local ingredients. Or if you fancy treating yourself, hire a private chef to come to your villa and rustle up a few classic Tuscan dishes.

Discover Tuscan food and drink

There are many ways in which you can enjoy Tuscan food and drink, from a Michelin star restaurant to cookery school.
