Boar (cinghiale) is king in Tuscany.
But there are many other old favourites.
I am staying in Castiglione della Pescaia in the Maremma, Southern Tuscany and a couple of days ago and for the first time, there was sunshine and some evidence of Spring.
Unfortunately today it is raining again and my friends and I are doubly saddened by the weather and because of the devastating results of the Australian elections.
The wild mint.
However, we have enjoyed 6 days in Tuscany so far.
There are also old favourites. The ricotta and the cheese are made with a black coloured sheep specific to the Maremma region.
