Tuscan  cuisine is  very well known for its beautiful fish and meat dishes  but also for a great  variety of vegetable dishes .We usually eat   vegetables which are in season and in winter time we prefer  vegetables  which have been cooked  ,baked or stewed  so the dish results nice to warm up our days.In Summer fresh, raw vegetables are probably the first choice, with nice light dressing and  interesting  way of mixing them.Just talking about some of the possible  cooked vegatbles you could try in Tuscany.
