The province of Pistoia boasts numerous excellent quality products as the bean of Sorana and the Pecorino of Pistoia Mountain. What distinguishes the cuisine of Pistoia is the rusticity and simplicity, thanks to the genuine flavors of its dishes like bread tasteless, fresh, toasted or stale which is the basis of many dishes. The soup is enriched with ingredients of the Tuscan tradition, such as tomatoes, garlic and green aromas; other dishes very known are the soup of beans and cabbage, pappa al pomodoro and “the cioncia”, also a delicacy poor, characte-rized with the simpler parts of the calf. Also in this province can not miss the Florentine steak and pork loin meat. Among the sweets we point out the various specialties such as the chestnut pancakes, the donuts, the chocolate from the famous Chocolate Valley, waffle of Montecatini Terme and the “brigidini” of Lamporecchio. Excellent wines such as Chianti Montalbano and Chianti Superiore.
