Tripe recipe made Florentine way (called in Italian “Trippa alla Fiorentina”) is one of the most challenging dishes of Tuscan cuisine: hell or heaven for any foodie who wants to explore the Florentine traditions deeply. The people of Florence love tripe and consider this recipe the Queen of street food: along with “Lampredotto”, “Trippa alla Fiorentina” is served in almost any corner on the streets of Florence. The tripe is reduced into stripes then slow cooked into tomatoes sauce and completed with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. If you are planning a few days in Florence, consider accepting the challenge to eat as real “Fiorentino” does!
Italian salsa verde is a traditional sauce originally served along with boiled meats and fish, but merely spread on bread crostini and pecorino cheese is so good as well! The traditional recipe wants white vinegar, but I prefer to use the juice and the peels of a lemon. In this way, the taste of the salsa verde will be more delicate!
