Nothing in the world has aver been accomplished without passion.

[ San Pancrazio 3 ]


Pane Toscano

In Tuscany, according to the prevailing hypothesis, the use of unsalted bread dates back to the 12th century when the Pisans began to charge the rival Florentines a high price for the large amount of salt that landed in the Tuscan port. The latter, in typically Tuscan style, responded to their neighbors’ move by starting to produce bread without salt. “Oh
Pisa, disgrace of the people of the beautiful land where ‘si’ is spoken,” wrote Dante himself. It’s their fault, therefore, even though “fault” cannot be spoken of given the perfect marriage between tasteless bread and Florentine cuisine.
