Tuscan food and wine is known the world over for its quality but simplicity, its honesty but a truly gastronomic experience.  From the simple fire-grilled bistecca from Florence to the peasant food of ribollita, or panzanella the food is simply an experience that keeps you coming back for more. Even more exciting is the fact that in Tuscany food, wine and menus differ from village to village, from the coasts to the marshes, from the hills to the Alps. When you travel to Tuscany this soon becomes apparent.

Vetrina Toscana is a body that gives their stamp of approval to over 500 Tuscan restaurants and 200 food shops selling traditional Tuscan food. Quoting from the handbook put out by Vetrina Toscana they explain further:

"Vetrina Toscana is a program run by the Regione Toscana. It is aimed at improving integration between the commercial distribution network and the small and medium-sized businesses that supply traditional, local, high quality, agricultural and artisan products.

Currently over 500 restaurants and 200 Botteghe have adhered to the scheme. With a program of enogastronomic events, Vetrina Toscana aims to increase the visitors’ awareness of the local territory and emphasize the importance of lesser known areas, from both a culinary and touristic point of view. These events are organized by the Chamber of Commerce with the collaboration of local government organizations and professional associations. The project is co-financed by the Unioncamere and Regione Toscana.

The Vetrina Toscana's restaurants stress the value of high quality regional produce, a short supply chain and traditional dishes. They have rediscovered their historical ties with the local territory and the seasonal nature of its crops, the real driving force behind the extraordinary variety of the Tuscan Cuisine so appreciated all over the world.

The range of goods on offer in the Vetrina Toscana’s food stores is characterized by their commitment to local agricultural produce, thus revitalizing an economic sector of small businesses which still manage to keep alive the culture of traditional food production. "
