April is a beautiful time to visit Tuscany. Still cool in the mornings and evenings but if the sun is shining, you can be sure to experience perfect weather to go sight-seeing in the cities as well as the Tuscan country-side which will be in full bloom!
Celebrate Easter! The Easter weekend will be very busy, especially in Florence for those who come to see the famous and historic Scoppio del Carro at the Duomo. You can read more about this event inside.
Lamb is the traditional meal prepared at Easter and we share another one of Chef Arturo Dori’s favourite Spring recipes of Lamb casserole with garlic & rosemary. We will make one of my favourites, the traditional Pan di Ramerino, an Easter sweet bread roll that is the Tuscan version of a ‘hot cross bun’ and also enjoy Baccelli & Pecorino!
Thomas Martini puts his spin on a classic drink for our April ‘Cocktail of the Month’, Harry’s Fizz.
In this issue we visit local town, Greve in Chianti which apart from being known as the ‘Gateway to the Chianti’, is also home to an historic Tuscan butcher, Antica Macelleria Falorni, where you can also enjoy authentic platters of prosciutto and cheese or perhaps you might prefer one of their famous tartares.
April 25th is Liberation Day in Italy which is dedicated to all of Italy’s fallen soldiers and known as the Day of Remembrance.
