FAQ – Tuscany Food Tour

What food is Tuscany Italy famous for?

Tuscany is famous for its fresh pasta, especially the Pappardelle al Cinghiale dish made of wide ribbon-like pasta with wild boar sauce. Another famous dish is Crostini Roscani, made of small toasted bread slices topped with chicken liver pate. Ribollita is Tuscany's most famous soup made with bread, cannellini beans, and vegetables. While Panzanella is a famous, refreshing Tuscan salad with stale bread, tomatoes, onions, and, of course, basil and olive oil. In addition to the tasty food, Tuscany is also renowned for its high-quality Chianti wine and olive oil!

What are the food rules in Italy?

Food is among the most essential things Italians care for. The pleasure of savoring good meals prepared with love and dedication is a form of art in Italy, and as such, it brings some etiquette with it. Here are some of the most important ones: Don't order cheese with your dish; the chefs serve a meal how it should be enjoyed, and never ask for cheese on top of any fish dish you've ordered! Pasta is usually a first course, not a main or side dish. Italians generally have a small breakfast and then a big lunch and dinner, most often with three courses each! While on the topic of pasta, don't eat bread with it, and don't cut it with a knife. Remember not to ask for tap water in the restaurant, and remember that Italians avoid sugary drinks with their meals as they detract from the flavor of foods. Sodas and beer are only acceptable with pizza, but rather enjoy a glass of wine or water with other dishes. Also, don't order Cappuccino after noon, as Italians believe rich foamy milk in the coffee is a breakfast drink.

What other tours should I do while in Tuscany?

Apart from food, the region is famous for its Tuscan wines! Go south to the town of Montalcino and enjoy gourmet food, wine, and a guided tour of their wine cellars with a Montalcino wine tour. Visit the region of super Tuscans with a Bolgheri wine tour and savor delicious Bolgheri blends. Continue your journey with local produce and taste local specialties paired with wines on a San Gimignano wine tour. Discover lesser-known wine regions with a Lucca wine tour, where you can taste wines on a beautiful patio overlooking the vineyards.
