PASTIFICIO ARTIGIANO FABBRI
For four generations the Fabbri family, in their artisanal pasta factory in Strada in Chianti, a tiny suburb at the entrance to Florence, have taken care of the secrets of pasta production. The drying is done with the use of a loom which requires a lot of time - 36/72 hours – and is necessary in order to retain the flavors and consistency of the pasta after cooking. The real secret is drying pasta at a low temperature – significantly less than 38 degrees – in order to avoid harmful processes that could cause deterioration of tasteful substances. All this guarantees an unaltered product of nutritional quality that’s rich in flavor and aromas of grain.
ANTICO FORNO RAVACCIANO
This ancient bakery of Ravacciano located near the center of Siena is a true institution, in fact, of sweets, and produces delicious desserts and pastries typical of the traditional gastronomy of Siena, as well as a special Tuscan bread call “sciocci”. All of these sweets are prepared respecting the ancient methods. In fact these recipes have been jealously handed down in time, confirming the pride of being artisans. The ingredients are carefully chosen: flour obtained from grain cultivated and milled in Tuscany; honey produced by bees that are an integral part of our Chianti landscape, as well as the sugar and almonds – signifying high quality and freshness in the final products. Their sweets are descendants of tradition and gift the pleasure of a unique and unmistakable taste and flavor.
