Food and Wine in Progress
Last weekend I visited the event Food and Wine in Progress in Florence Tuscany. An event in the heart of Florence to explore the world of Tuscany wines and food. This event takes place in “Stazione Leopolda” and attracts many food and wine lovers each year!
Exhibitors show many food and wine delicacies. Chefs prepare local dishes and propose creative food combinations. In addition big names and small producers of the most famous wineries of Tuscany participate to the Food & Wine in Progress event. Wine tastings are offered to guests and many wines are accompanied by events, presentations and show cooking.
Wineries I work with represented their wines. Sada produces different types of quality wines including: Vermentino, Toscana IGT and Bolgheri Superiore.
Piandaccoli instead showcased their Chianti Reserve and a variety Tuscany IGT wines made from autochthonous grapes: Mammalo and Foglia Tonda.
The Food and Wine in Progress event gives you also the opportunity to visit Florence. The weather in November is not very warm and it’s less crowded in the historical centre. One more reason to visit this event in Florence!
Restaurant in Florence
Before visiting the Food and Wine in Progress event I went out to Florence for a delightful lunch. Trattoria “Nella” is near Piazza della Signoria. It is a great traditionally restaurant for delicious food and nice service. The owner is charismatic and he looked after me very well!
They have a good ri-bollita (Tuscan bread – vegetable soup) and the best homemade chocolate cake I’ve every had. Yummy!
