Pappa al pomodoro


Pappa al pomodoro is a Tuscan meal typically prepared with fresh tomatoes, bread, olive oil, garlic, basil, and various other fresh ingredients.

Just like the Ribollita, this dish also speaks of the Florentines’ ingenuity, since pappa al pomodoro was best known as a poor people’s meal.

The rural origin of this first course is demonstrated by its ingredients: homemade Tuscan bread (unsalted), tomatoes, garlic, basil, extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany, salt and pepper.

To get the real pappa al pomodoro, we always use unsalted Tuscan bread and extra virgin olive oil.
