Tuscany: a journey through the Italian cuisine of Maremma

Posted on 06-07-2012

The Italian cuisine of the Maremma, Tuscany, is largely poor, simple and frugal: the typical dishes of this land are created using the products of the earth and the sea nearby, and the base of its food are game, soups, vegetables and fish. Poor but tasty and wholesome meals.

One of the dishes of the Italian cuisine of this land of Tuscany is the acqua cotta (literally “boiled water”): it is a typical recipe of Grosseto, in the heart of the Maremma, a vegetable soup with wheat flour bread and olive oil, and there are several variants of it. Another typical recipe of this city is also known as schiacciata (“flattened”), an oil cake.
