Tuscan cuisine: the art of eating well

The Tuscan cuisine has always been a source of inspiration for our activity of manufacturers of "kitchen furniture". Not surprisingly, our company payoff “ALTA CUCINA TOSCANA” meaning “HOUTE TUSCAN CUISINE” is an explicit homage to the culinary arts of our region that is loved and appreciated all over the world. The adjective "HOUTE/HIGHT" in particular is a direct a reference to the quality that the Tuscan cuisine offers everybody. The same quality that our company wants to express with its products.

The Tuscan cuisine reflects the region it belongs: genuine like its people and its nature. Genuine like, first of all, the basic ingredients of most of Tuscan cooking recipes. Ingredients that are related more to the culture and feelings of people than to the materiality of fo: bread, wine and oil, sons of corn, grape and olive tree. Symbols of prosperity, happiness and peace that belong to Tuscany like the stony ground where they grow.

Meat and fish are also part of the culinary culture of our region. Think of the lampredotto, the trippa, the scottiglia or the cacciucco: all dishes made from the poorer parts of the beast or (originally) with the remains of the noble fish that was once intended for rich people.
The Tuscans are the masters of "Art of Eating Well": their skill lies in knowing which ingredients to use, even when they are "poor", making them assume a nobility that comes from the art of cooking them. That's why we are talking about HIGH TUSCAN CUISINE: high not because sophisticated or elaborate, but on the contrary, because true, genuine, simple and noble at the same time.
