Tuscan cuisine is a type of Italian cuisine that we don't often make at home. While we love classics like ribolitta, we've always been partial to Southern Italian food. Inspired by two amazing meals at Cibreo, one of our favorite restaurants in Italy, we started exploring some Tuscan classics.
Given the choice between meat and fish, we'll choose fish most of the time, so when we found a classic recipe for slow-cooked calamari and Swiss chard in a spicy tomato broth, we had to give it a try. The base of this dish is soffritto, a slow cooked mixture of minced onion, carrot, and celery.
