A true traditional pleasure

The steak is a true Florentine pleasure

The true fiorentine steak cames from thecut of beef and beacuse of its particular T-shape formed by the bone after the cut, it is so called “T-Bone Steak” by the Enghish people. F or an excellent yield, the Florentine steak must be treated properly for several days, from hanging to slaughter; precisely for this reason, its best taste is expressed only when the cut is very fresh. Even cooking becomes a moment of extreme attention on the part of the chef, who must respect the rules of “five minutes per part” so that this delight can be enjoyed in all its soft and juicy taste.
