Summer dinner: Bistecca fiorentina
Ahhh....Il Nostro Inviato. Sa cucinare lui!
Every now and again the chef grills up a steak, and it's always delicious!
What you see in the picture is essentially a bistecca fiorentina (same cut, same cooking style), which our friends in Florence used to devour on a very regular basis.
In fact, we used to ring up some ridiculous bills at places like La Cantinetta in the Florentine countryside because the large bisteccas served there were not cheap.
Put over a bed of arugula and topped with shaved parmeggiano, it's a very simple dish. And man is it good!
