The Love Italian Life Awards is proud to announce the nominees for The Best Contemporary Restaurant in Tuscany 2019 Award which will be decided by public vote shortly.

The shortlisted restaurants will have an exciting opportunity to win a final place in The Love Italian Life 2019 Awards in Dublin on November 19th which is an international ceremony celebrating the best contemporary Italian restaurants and their authentic chefs across Italy, UK & Ireland.

The nominated Michelin Star restaurants in Tuscany were selected by an independent panel of Italian food and beverage experts excelling in all key criteria including the quality of ingredients, recipe innovation, contemporary Italian cooking techniques, dish presentation and wine pairing selection.

The meat and salumi from Tuscany has an outstanding regional and national reputation that is obvious when local specialities like the ‘florentine steak’ are experienced alongside sausages such as ‘bardiccio’ and ‘buristo’. Tuscan extra virgin olive oil and vegetables are key ingredients in many of the famous soup recipes such as ‘ribollita’ and meaty rice dishes including the tuscan classic ‘cibreo’. When speaking about the cuisine of Tuscany, one cannot ignore how important the connection of food pairings are to fundamental wines such as Chianti, Vernaccia and Vin Santo. Their sweet dessert wines are the ideal choice to match the local desserts such as ‘cantucci di Prato’, ‘panforte di Siena’ and ‘zuccotto florentino’ to name but a few.
