Dario: the best butcher in the world…

Today was our first free day of the trip with no appointments. With a night booked in Florence, we decided to take a little detour and stop by Panzano in Chianti to visit the best butcher in the world: Dario Cecchini.

Not only is Dario a butcher specialising in traditional cuts of Tuscan beef, but he is also a showman and has a restaurant above his shop serving meat prepared by his staff. I wouldn’t say it was the best meat I have ever eaten, but the theatre behind it all was worth the visit alone. See pictures below.

  1. Anthony – does he still do the olive oil cake in the massive paella like pan? His meat was good but the cake was out of this world when we visited.
