The last day of September, we ended our trip in Florence, with dinner across the Arno at Mama Gina’s. Fresh porcinis were all over the menu, so we didn’t resist.
This beautiful plate of thinly-sliced, grilled beef was arranged across a bed of peppery arugula, topped with sautÃ©ed porcinis and fruity olive oil that seemed to find their way into so many of our dishes in Tuscany. It was possibly the finest layering of flavors I’ve ever eaten. So fine, that it obviously deserves another trip next year.
