Florence, Italy-The City of Lilies

A few words about Florence, from Baci's own head of production Roy Rutenberg.
The eyes are overcome with beauty and do not know where to look! These is how I feel when I walk the streets of Florence, populated with fashionable people as well art and architecture that is displayed on almost every corner. It is befitting that this city is considered the capital of the Renaissance.
Not only is Florence notable as one of Europe's fashion capitals and home for top-notch Italian designers, it is a city blooming with some of the best culinary dishes the world has to offer. I have highlighted some of my favorite parts of Florence that continue to inspire myself and many elements of the Baci brand:
The people of Florentine (Florence) are big meat-eater's. One of the most famous dishes in the area is the "Bistecca alla Florentina" which translates into "Steak style Florentine". The chianina beef in which the steak is cut from is famous for its tenderness and flavor. Another extraordinary dish from the area is the " Pollo al Mattone". Chicken thighs are cooked and pressed with a brick stone and usually served with a side dish of sautéed kale or spinach.
These are just a few of my favorite things about the great city of Florence that I am so fortunate to visit every time I visit Italy on Baci's behalf and would recommend that everyone should see the city on their own.
