In A Family Farm in Tuscany, Sarah Fioroni, chef, cooking instructor, sommelier, and manager of her family’s organic farm near historic San Gimignano, shares stories of family traditions and daily life at Fattoria Poggio Alloro, founded in 1955. In addition to her engaging anecdotes that reveal how life at Poggio Alloro changes from month to month, Sarah shares more than fifty traditional Tuscan recipes that are prepared daily in the kitchen using the farm’s seasonal ingredients—from hearty winter dishes to salads and risottos featuring garden vegetables to holiday breads and desserts.

Sarah Fioroni, a native of San Gimignano, has worked full time at Fattoria Poggio Alloro since her graduation from high school. Now the farm’s general manager and executive chef, she is also an AIS-certified sommelier, president of the Associazione Strada del Vino Vernaccia di San Gimignano, and a certified teacher for the Fattorie Didattiche program for schoolchildren.
