Brunch and horseback riding for Temera
The Locanda, together with other tourist accommodation in the Mugello area, has been part of the event managed by Temera, company leader of RFID Solutions for Fashion&luxury goods, to make their guests live unique and unforgettable experiences.
For a whole morning the Locanda hosted due groups that could taste a genuine brunch made of cakes, pastries, local ham and cheese, homemade bread and jams. They could have a delicious break in the open lodge enjoying the sun and a nice coffee before starting with their ride.
By horse, they got to Vallappero, the hill behind the building and wonderful panoramic terrace from where they could admire the whole valley. Then, they continued their circular excursion back to the Locanda.
We wish to thank Temera for the opportunity and Alessia, from the travel agency “DemidoffViaggi” because it’s thanks to her if the Mugello area is finally starting to be valorized and promoted for tourist purposes.

On 17th May, we took part in a event that had place inside the Palazzo dei Vicari ( Scarperia ), in collaboration with the Florentine Chef Association…the “Disfida del Tortello”!
9 chefs have been chosen for the competition to be the partecipants of the Tortello’s champion election. The jury had to take into account the cooking of the tortello, time, workbench cleaning and plating.
Our Chef Claudio Fiorenzano and Sous Chef Alberto Lamberini, have been super!
They made a careful research on potatoes stuffed tortello’s origins and on ingredients provenience, linked to the historical period, with a bit of customization but keeping the tradition. So they’ve chosen to use ground by stone integral flours, like in the ancient times.The stuffing, delicated but savory, has been made with potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, some nutmeg and thyme, with a parmisan cream at the bottom…to licking their chops!
Compliments to the winner of the competition and to all the partecipants, the event has been a good opportunity for all of us and to enhance the Mugello area.
About the Locanda, our tortelli will be part of the menu at our Restaurant, ready to be tasted by our favourite jury…YOU!
