I'm Vittoria the daughter of Pierluigi and together with my father I have organized all the recipes that you all have cooking during these 13 months every Friday.

These recipes and other great tuscan recipes that I have found in the old manuscript, are in this my first tuscan cookbook.

I'm a young girl but my grandmother Graziella has teached to me, from the age of 5 years old, the secret of tuscan kitchen and I've always cooked for my family and for the people that visit us, helped from our 10 fantastic cooks of Torciano.

Guys, my heart is full. After 13-plus months of recipes done during the virtual "The Farmer in the Kitchen" in this lockdown period, testing, manuscript writing and photo shoots.

But I’m over the moon with the final result.

I hope you love it as much as I do.
The cookbook is written in english.

About the Book

Developing the cover was a long process (more about it later, but let’s just say it involved a re-shoot and more than a few wonderful locations like our Historic tower Torre Chigi into the San Gimignano Castle and our green Tenuta Torciano).

I’m beyond thrilled to finally share the cover design of ABOUT SANGIMIGNANO, The Cookbook: Tasted, Perfected and Giachi Family-Approved Recipes with you.

Extract from the Book

Not long ago, on a boring gray and rainy day, I found myself locked up in my family's tower (no one had kidnapped me) absorbed in my thoughts. I still remember today the millions of questions I was asking myself about the meaning of life, those questions that sooner or later everyone asks about himself.

Therefore, I was looking for a book that could give a solution to my problems among the creaking of the wood and the dust hidden in every corner. So I came across an antiquated but solemn little book that had been buried in that shelf for who knows how long.

It immediately caught my attention and I therefore decided to take a look at it. Leafing through the pages, I realized that it was a cooking manuscript, tens, perhaps hundreds of years old. It consisted of a collection of notes, notes and recipes from a girl perhaps as young as I was at the time. The diary opened with an inscription that particularly intrigued me: "property of Victoria Giachi, 1728"

"Anyway, my first thought was to deliver to the world cooking notes handed down to me in an old manuscript, but reworking them according to my lifestyle and my grandma teachings."

What will you find in the book?

● Food is not only a source of nourishment and pleasure, it is also a wonderful inspiration for stories. Here you can read some of them.

● Many essentials tips to cook like an italian with the mediterranean diet.

● A lot of recipes, from appetizers to first and second courses with desserts.
