  • About

This sort of delicately flavoured dish is a legacy of Caterina de’ Medici’s Renaissance cuisine. It was probably transported to France, along with many other superb recipes, when she left Florence as a child bride with her retinue of cooks, in order to teach the French about cooking! In Tuscany you would most probably find this dish featured as a first course.
