You experience the hospitality of the Tuscan countryside in the bustling city center of Firenze. Your Tasting will take place in our subterranean Cantina that dates back to the 16th Century. You begin you flavorful journey with a Balsamic and Olive Oil presentation and tasting. You will learn the difference between the categories of "balsamic." You will taste balsamic glazes to a Traditional balsamic aged at least 12 years from Modena and Reggio Emilia. You will taste and compare the qualities of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You will learn the process in creating these precious elixirs. I pour a glass of bubbles and we toast to our time together. Calling Truffle Lovers! We highlight truffles in the tastings. You begin this flavorful journey with an array of nibbles. You continue the tasting with a selection of Crostini topped with pesto, ragu, pate, truffle cream or truffle salsa. You sample three panini stuffed with salumi and highlighted with truffle cream, pesto or a dusting of organic fennel pollen. From a local farm, you taste a selection of fresh to aged organic Florentine cheeses topped with a selection of wine jellies, preserves and taste our Conti White Truffle honey. We will surprise your palate with seasonal fresh fruit topped with balsamic glazes and our Sicilian sweet creams. A selection of three wines from our cantina are paired with the tasting series.
We are a Florentine and family run business originating from the 1900's. A family tradition, Stefano is the third generation curating Tuscan food for "Conti Tuscany Flavours." Stefano says "food is in my blood" and has been in the food industry for over 45 years. He is a hunter, pizzaiolo and truffle hunter. From the city life of the US, I am living the dream of the Tuscan way of life cooking (and eating) great food, wine, travel, experiences and adventures. Now, I am immersed in the food culture of farmers, producers, chefs, Mammas willing to share recipes and restauranteurs. I can cook and go "plate to plate" with any Italian Mamma. Together, we continue to source artisan and regionally authentic products throughout Italy that are showcased in our gourmet shop. We enjoy sharing our Tuscan experiences of food, flavors and adventures.
