A Tuscan Dinner Register View Cart

Ah, Tuscany! The food, the landscape, the villas, the wine. You may not be able to fly to Italy at a moment's notice to enjoy the riches of Tuscany, but you can bring a little Tuscany to your dinner table. Learn to prepare a traditional Tuscan meal at home. Make a salad of Fava Beans, Romano, Fennel, and Greens; cook Penne Pasta in Porcini Mushroom Sauce; and Chicken Al Forno, made with Olives, Tomatoes, and Rosemary. A specialty of Tuscany, Si Torta Di Nonna, a custard-filled cornmeal creation topped with pine nuts, ends the meal.
