It’s great to be back in Tuscany and one of my favourite cities – Siena.
Our tour kicked off in great style as we headed out for dinner to La Taverna di San Guiseppe – one of Siena’s top restaurants.
A glorious meal ensued and we were left waving white flags as we surrendered to the generous quantities of sublime food.
A delicate potato soufflé, truffled mushrooms and a sausage, onion and cream cheese puff pastry (I know – sounds like a sausage roll but was much better!) were the antipasti. A delicious ribollita followed and then it was onto the pasta – pappardelle with a Florentine ragu. Wild boar cooked in milk, bay leaves, rosemary and sage was superb and the ricotta and mascarpone tart was as light as a feather. All washed down with a Rosso di Montalcino and a Chianti Classico.
A great start to our Tuscany Wine Tour!
