A great many regions of Italy are intensely diverse; the food from one city barely even echoing that of its neighbour. Tuscany is a little different, and a common thread certainly runs through the food of its major cities – Florence, Sienna, Lucca & Pisa, amongst others – and through the countryside in between. Livorno, a sort of renaissance Milton Keynes, is a rare exception; its food, less bounded by tradition, features bold and punchy flavourings; though it is nevertheless distinctively Tuscan, and fits well within the greater cannon of the cuisine; earthy pulses, bright and crisp vegetables, and rich aromatic seafood, here strongly punctuated with garlic and chilli. This is a part of Italy that has beguiled the British for centuries, and no doubt will continue to do so for many more.  

For your meal you will need:

A bowl for dressing the salad

A generous sized pot for the cacciucco

The detailed recipes for the dishes are here, but in essence:

  • Warm the cacciucco base
  • Dress the tuna & beans, then eat
  • Add the fish & shellfish to the cacciucco base and cook
  • Grill the bread for a fettunta
  • Dress the rocket & fennel salad
  • Eat both
  • Let the pie come up to room temperature, then eat this too
