Food and wine writer, Bruce Palling, muses about the allure of Tuscany and the joys of its cuisine. He reminisces on past meals throughout the region from a three-star Michelin restaurant in a Florentine palazzo to a mom-and-pop butcher shop cum trattoria in Chianti.

In case you haven't heard, Cinque Terre, that quintessential slice of Italian heaven along the Ligurian coast, suffered greatly following huge floods during a heavy rainstorm at the end of October. Follow the clean-up progress with blogger Kate of Little Paradiso.
