When you want comfort food, you turn to Southern food. French cuisine conjures up thoughts of richly sauced dishes. With German fare, sausages and schnitzel spring to mind. But with Italian meals, simplicity reigns supreme. That’s especially true for the Tuscan region. Bistecca Alla Fiorentina. Pappa al Pomodoro. Castagnaccio. All simple yet flavorful traditional Tuscan fare. If you don’t have the time to travel to Tuscany, drive to St Mark’s Episcopal Church in Basking Ridge instead for their Under the Tuscan Sun Wine Tasting & Dinner.
