Tuscan Maremma, a journey of flavors from the Stella del Mare Camping Village
In addition to the artistic and landscape wonders that attract tourists from all over the world every year, the Maremma of Grosseto has an equally well-known reputation in the food and wine sector. Certainly wine and extra virgin olive oil are the most characteristic products of the area, but for many years also other food productions, such as pecorino cheese or products related to fishing and fish farming, are taking on an increasingly important role.
For fans of the culture of food, visiting the Maremma is a real journey through the culinary traditions linked to genuine cuisine, made with simple but tasty ingredients; for this reason the quality of Maremma food and wine alone is worth a trip to this province. In addition to the call of the sea that we find in acquacotta, the dish par excellence of the Maremma cuisine, there are those of the hills and mountains present in meat recipes such as pappardelle with hare, or tortelli stuffed with chard and ricotta and seasoned with meat sauces.
To accompany the typical dishes of the Maremma, fine DOC wines capable of enhancing the already rich flavors of tradition and the prestigious extra virgin olive oil i.g.p. Tuscan.
