So let’s talk about my gourmet tour of Florence, a fun way to discover the food and the markets of Florence. My tour usually includes San Lorenzo Central Market and Sant’Ambrogio Market walking through Piazza Duomo and the Middle Ages district. I will tell you fun stories about the market rich history and about how food is for us part of our culture. You will know the ingredients and how they are accurately selected to be used in our recipes, such as the one of the typical “pappa al pomodoro” or what is Lampredotto.
Walking in the streets of Florence we will explain how wine was sold till the last century in our “buche del vino” (wine doors). In the two markets that we will see during our gourmet tour, you will experience the sights, sounds, and flavors of these historic landmarks. You will also find out how little things have changed during the centuries! It will be interesting to experience the smell in the air of the oldest typical street-food in Florence: Lampredotto, Coccoli and Bombolone. Lampredotto is like tripes: boiled meat with a vegetable broth and served with a special herb sauce in a panino (sandwich, roll). We usually eat it in the street, it is a take away local food. “Coccoli” instead are like bread dough thrown into boiling olive or seeds oil and salted, like a small ball of fried bread. The Bombolone instead is pastry, it can be described as being very similar to a donut... but much better and if you don’t trust me, you better taste it!
During our food and wine tour, you will have the chance to stop at one of the historical charming cafés of Piazza della Repubblica for a morning cappuccino or to savour a Spritz or a glass of wine sitting in one of the rooftop cafés of Florence!
