We are in Saline di Volterra. Without a doubt, the Mediterranean is one of the worlds most popular destinations- truly the middle of the earth and cradle of history. Tuscany exhibits a distinct and enduring way of life. Old time traditions mingle with the new one, and everybody visiting the Osteria Etrusca will have their choice of delectable, home made cuisine and world-class local wines.
There is no single, monolithic Italian cuisine. Italian food culture is very regional. With a varied geography, and an even more diverse history. Italian cuisine changes, depending on where you are. The province of Pisa is privileged habitat for truffles! Their search and use in local gourmet restaurants have a long tradition. Here, the white truffle embodies rural and social micro-history.
In the hilly Volterra, fairs and village banquets celebrate the maturing of these tasty funghi, which thrive under oak trees and poplars.
