Regional dishes

The regional dishes of Monte Amiata arise from the medieval age.

The numerous restaurants prepare dishes that jealously preserve the old ingredients: soups like Acqua Cotta, zuppa di funghi, buglione; home made pastas, like tortelli (stuffed with different fillings using unusual combinations of ingredients), pici, tagliatelle, pappardelle and maccheroni. Main courses are prepared from the Cinta Senese pigs, Chianina and Maremmana cattle: all are indigenous, tasty and their quality is guaranteed! The salamis are outstanding thanks to the extraordinary tradition of production. Among the cheeses "Ravaggiolo" is particularly noteworthy.
