Keywords: Tuscany, guide, what to see, Italy, travel, places
But Tuscan food isn't about famous butchers or even famous chefs--it's about the simple cooking of Italian Grandmothers, and we've searched high and wide for some of the little places where traditions are still strong, country places you'll need a car to get to, but rewarding places you won't likely forget.
