THIS TUSCAN LIFE-MARCH

[ebook_store ebook_id=”5275″]

March is known as the Pazzerello (crazy) month due to the unpredictable weather.   It is a beautiful time to explore Tuscany, from the country to the coast, to view the changing landscape and ‘awakening’ after the long, cold Winter.

We are very excited to launch our new feature, ‘Cocktail of the Month’ which will see the very talented barman, Thomas Martini from Harry’s Bar Firenze mixing up a new cocktail for each month reflecting the tastes of the season.

For those of us that love Artichokes, this is when they are at their peak. In this issue, we share a few simple recipes that will have you yearning for this delicious vegetable!

There is much debate on where you can find the best Bistecca alla Fiorentina in Florence.  We take you to Coco Lezzone, the iconic trattoria who has been cooking their steak on the same wood-fire oven for over 100 years . 

We also visit Scarperia this month where you can see the artisan craft of knife making.

Ciao, I'm Lisa B,
I’m a magazine founder & editor, a private food & shopping guide and watercolour artist who wants to share everything I know about the best-kept secrets in Tuscany with you.

I created This Tuscan Life blog, magazine and experiences to share everything I love about Florence & Tuscany, one of the most popular and visited regions in Italy.   Add a splash of watercolour & you've got a creative mamma of two who wants to show you the true & authentic side of Tuscany.

I always love discovering new fashion brands and so you can imagine my delight when I was recently introduced to a beautiful new Florentine brand called @pavonefirenze.

Founded in 2019 by Creative Directors Angela Testani and Massimo Brilli, PAVóNE FIRENZE is a women’s shoe and accessory collection, designed and created in Florence.
