Essentials of Tuscan Cooking II
Tuscany's idyllic countryside, artistic treasures and fragrant, rustic cuisine make it one of Italy's most idealized regions. Celebrate Tuscany by cooking dishes that highlight hearty wild boar and rabbit, homey beans, rich polenta and classic bread-and-tomato salad—all washed down with world-famous Chianti. Take your taste buds on a journey and let the fresh ingredients and pure regional flavors transport you, with specialties including: White Bean Bruschetta; Wild Boar Ragù; with Polenta; Burro e Salvia (butternut squash ravioli with sage butter); Panzanella; Carciofi con Piselli (artichoke with peas and prosciutto); Stewed Rabbit with Olives and Rosemary; and Tiramisu. You'll get to experience all of these dishes with glasses of Limoncello and Chianti.
