Een kunstig bezoek aan Asciano

  • Een kunstig bezoek aan Asciano

    Asciano is een ondergewaardeerde stad dat langzaamaan tot bloei komt, vol met kleine culturele pareltjes die Toscane zo bijzonder maken. Overweeg een bezoek aan Asciano wanneer je de Crete Senesi-route aandoet (zie hierboven). Dit ogenschijnlijk onopvallend stadje onthult een cluster van zogeheten kleine, maar magische musea, waarvan Museo d’Arte Sacra de beste is, een schatkamer aan Siënese kunst. Lunch in een plaatselijke herberg en probeer de scherpe lokale kaas, pecorino delle Crete Senesi. Maar het beste van dit alles is het bezoek aan Asciano met de Nature Train (zie hierboven). De trein is zo ingesteld dat het samenvalt met de levendige markt die lokale honing en pecorino uit de Crete-regio en Pienza verkoopt, of kastanjes uit Monte Amiata.

Walk the Saturday Market & Organic food guided-tasting

In my village, Greve in Chianti, you can visit one of the most characteristic Food Market of Tuscany. The Greve's square host the Saturday market from about 1000 years!
I will introduce major themes in Tuscan cuisine and give you background in the evolution of this area as a wine & food center.
In the market, we will see, smell, and savor the fresh, locally-sourced meat and vegetables, cheeses, bread, and baked goods. We will discuss the importance of eating what is "di stagione" (seasonal). I will teach you some traditional Chianti recipes, simple and made with few ingredients, that I learned from my grandmother Anna.
Not just a look: after the market visit we will back at the Wine Lovers Academy, where we will have a tasting lesson about the traditional Tuscan food: from Pecorino cheese to the artisanal salami, Chianti Olive Oil, Honey, and truffle!
I'm waiting for you here in G​reve to let you discover all the secrets of our beautiful​ land!
