Did you know?

Legend has it that this famous Florentine tradition dates back to the Feast of St. Lawrence in the 1500s when they lit bonfires all over the city to roast meat for everyone, including some English knights travelling through that shouted, “Beef steak! Beef steak!” This resulted in the Italian name “bistecca,” and it has been a beloved cuisine for centuries.
