My Tour is bringing you directly inside a restaurant professional kitchen located in the heart of Florence, at the renowned “I' Tuscani 3”, the temple of the meat.

Then, the final part will be dedicated to the proper cutting and serving of the meat.

Everything will end with the traditional Tuscan dessert, Cantucci and Vin Santo (almond biscuits with aged sweet wine)!
