For an all-out Tuscan feast, try one of Frances Mayes’s suggested menus, with recipes from Every Day in Tuscany and The Tuscan Sun Cookbook.

Also be sure to visit to learn about Frances Mayes’s Olive Oil, homemade at Villa Bramasole. Join the Bramasole Convivium to receive the Tuscan oil at your home! A good idea: Soak some toasted bread in the oil and salt it a little – an ancient Tuscan pleasure, as old as the wind. Savor, while reading Every Day in Tuscany.
