Eating in the food and wine shops of Chianti
Another opportunity to taste top quality products are the food and wine shops. Ancient butchers’ and grocery shops become a place where you can stop for a fast and informal break, choose what you like directly from the counter and eat it comfortably seated at the centre of a typical Tuscan hamlet.
Platters with cold cuts, pecorino cheese of different ageing accompanied by flavoured honey or homemade jams; the traditional ribollita (bread soup with vegetables) and pappa al pomodoro (bread soup with tomatoes) the strong point of shops such as the Antica Macelleria (Ancient Butcher’s shop) Falorni of Greve in Chianti or the Macelleria (Butcher’s shop) Francini of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa.
You can also choose the famous T-bone steak by Cecchini that is, the Antica Macelleria (Ancient Butcher’s shop) Cecchini of Panzano in Chianti, known and frequented also by Florentine people.
