Enjoying the Taste of Tuscany

First off I need to be honest, I’m not much of a foodie and quite the picky eater. But even for a picky eater like me Tuscany spoiled my taste buds. A European vacation is probably the best time to step out and enjoy the the taste of a country, especially when your on a bike tour in Tuscany! There is nothing like stopping at a local gelateria in the middle of a long bike ride and enjoying the silky smooth taste of Italian gelato. I don’t want to go as far as to say it’s heaven… But it’s pretty close! Then you have diner, which is prime time to refuel after a long day of biking. I just couldn’t get enough of the local bread and olive oil… stuffing myself at every meal on it. But I always saved some room for the main course and of course I ate a lot of pasta’s and pizza while I was there. Maybe it wasn’t so much of stepping out of my comfort zone for food, but trust me when I say I enjoyed it! Last but not least there is the wine… This one is new to me, being fairly young and not much of a drinker I wasn’t too keen on wine before I went to Italy. But leave it to a wine tasting tour in Tuscany to develop my palette for wine. My favorite and one you need to try (especially if you’re not into red wine) is prosecco, which is a white wine made from the Glera (Prosecco) grape. Now I need to go make some pasta and have a glass of prosecco!

Your friendly Tuscany lover,

Jonathan
