In 2016, I created the This Tuscan Life magazine. It started out as a book draft actually and this issue, November was to be the first of many 'chapters'.
This first issue was only 16 pages long and there was an error in the article about olives at the frantoio where I refer to them as 'grapes'. (you can never proof-read too many times!)
Issue Number 3, January 2017
This cover was from the archives of Giovanni Battista Giorgini, founder of the Pitti Fashion shows that take place in Florence each year in January & June. The first show was held in 1951 and was such a success that the following year, The City of Florence opened the Sala Bianca in Palazzo Pitti to accommodate the International buyers.

These delicious soft square pillows of ravioli filled with mashed potato, cheese, garlic and parsley are more commonly known in Tuscany as Tortelli Mugellani, the famous Tortello from Mugello! If you haven’t tried these yet, then add them to your list of ‘must-taste’ when you next travel to this region known as the ‘Green Valley of Tuscany’.
Barberino di Mugello is a small town found an easy thirty minute drive along the A1 from Florence or 45 minutes from Bologna. For those of you that know me well, you’ll understand one of the things that I find special about visiting Barberino…….. Did someone say Designer Outlet?
