If there’s one thing to look forward to in February, then it’s the many sweet treats that start to fill the local bakeries.
As in many other parts of the world, it is time for Carnival in Tuscany. The first indication that the Carnival Season is here are the beautiful sweets that start to appear in the local bakery. Sweet delights such as Cenci, Frittelle di Riso and Schiacciata alla Fiorentina. In February’s issue, we share the recipes so that you can try these at home (and not just for Carnival).
Visit Viareggio, not only home to Italy’s most famous Carnival, but stroll along it’s beautiful promenade, admire the impressive architecture of its villas along the seaside and join in the masked parades and carneval festivites.
Or if you’re feeling romantic, visit Pienza for San Valentino!
