Proposta Leonardo, a genius a chef

Everybody knows Leonardo was a genius. However not everybody knows he was vegetarian, devoted to nature and respectful of animals … very uncommon qualities at those age.  If he was born in our age he would definitely be a fan of Carlin Petrin and of his philosophy of the food “good, clean and right”. If you wish to know the most curious and unpublished aspects of the relationship between Leonardo and the food, L’Andana suggests you a special proposal to discover the exhibition “Leonardo da Vinci – a genius, a chef” at the Acquagiusta House, organized by Elisabetta Del Dottore. Furthermore you will enjoy a menu inspired by Leonardo’s cuisine created by chef Omar Agostini, you will taste the four Acquagiusta wines produced by Tenuta La Badiola winery and try, after a very relaxing ESPA treatment, the refreshing drink “Acquarosa”, a recipe of Leonardo himself.

The estate comes under the municipality of Castiglione della Pescaia, in the province of Grosseto, and is within easy reach of the main towns in Tuscany (Florence, Siena and Pisa) and numerous important historical, cultural and archaeological sites.
