Chianina meat means absolute excellence in Tuscan culinary culture; tenderness and a unique flavour. 5% of pork meat is also used to balance the Chianina meat, a low-fat meat which favours the compactness and tenderness.
Chianina is a low-fat, low-calorie, low-cholesterol meat!
Our animals are fed exclusively organic fodder!
The front part of the animal, as with the rear, is of excellent quality, but is traditionally more difficult to cook. La Toraia’s philosophy is to re-propose an excellent product following a more modern concept.
Our story starts in Valdichiana, on the Tenuta della Fratta; 500 hectares of organic agriculture, 370 of which are for the fodder for our Chianina cattle.
Pure Chianina hamburgers from our cattle-breeding farms.
Organic potatoes from the Tuscan hills
Organic potatoes from the Tuscan hills, Kennebec. They are unique for their flavour and crunchiness. Our potatoes are hand-cut and prepared daily to guarantee the best possible product, just like in times past!
Our La Toraia brand beer
A craft beer produced by our “Mastro Birraio” and linked to the Val di Chiana where our organic barley fields are located
Rediscovery and utilisation of the “Fifth Quarter”
Gastronomic use of the “fifth quarter” (offal, tail etc) goes back to Etruscan times. The love of this food continued through Medieval times, the Renaissance and continues right up to the modern cuisine of Escoffier and Pellegrino Artusi.
In Florence, “lampredotto” ( a typical Florentine dish made from the fourth stomach of the cow), is an institution. It is a daily presence on the city streets in the “banchini dei trippai” which are little street-food trucks. They are the bulwark of a popular tradition preserved under the shade of ancient buildings and great works of art.
