San Miniato-wandeling om de zonsondergang te zien

  • San Miniato-wandeling om de zonsondergang te zien

    San Miniato al Monte ligt ten zuiden van de rivier de Arno en is één van de mooiste romaanse basilieken in de stad. Gelegen op één van de hoogste punten van Florence is het tevens een magische plek om de zonsondergang te bekijken. Voor romantici biedt het meer inspirerende uitzichten dan vanaf Piazzale Michelangelo. Aangezien de kerk sluit bij zonsondergang kun je je bezoek perfect combineren met een schilderachtige zonsondergang over de stad en het omliggende platteland. Het huidige complex dateert uit 1018 en is een goed voorbeeld van de Florentijnse romaanse stijl. Verwonder je over de groen-en-wit gestreepte marmeren gevel; het palet voor Florentijnse gevels was doorgaans wit marmer uit Carrara, roze uit Maremma en donkergroen uit Prato. Binnenin vind je de Cappella del Crocifisso, een kleine gewelfde tempel, en de 11de-eeuwse crypte. Als je geluk hebt zal je ook de monniken tegenkomen die zich wijden aan gregoriaanse liederen in de late namiddag, om 17.30 in de zomer, maar een uur eerder in de winter. Wandel naar de top van de heuvel of neem bus 12 of 13.

Tuscan Cooking Classes by Le Caggiole

Kitchen has always been the fulcrum of this home, where my family is living since more than 7 generations.
I have always been fascinated by my grandmother's ability to prepare awesome dishes from Tuscan tradition, always with few, simple but precious ingredients.
That cultural heritage was in danger of disappearing: I spent a lot of time cooking with her, trying to learn her recipes and secrets.
In the end, I realized that she had given me a bigger gift: I had assimilated her cooking philosophy!
Then, I realized that tradition is not a dusty book but a living thing able also to adapt to new conditions, and even improve.
I studied ingredient's seasonality, their sustainable production systems, new cooking techniques, techniques of tasting: almost without realizing it, in the meantime, I became Chef and finally, also Sommelier.
Since a lot of years, I decided to share this path: a long path that is not yet finished...
