Pork meat-based speciality with truffle. "Tonno del Chianti" has been prepared in Tuscan kitchens for generations. In ancient times farmers in the Chianti region, not yet having refrigerators and freezers, preserved the meat of young pigs in this way. The name derives from the fact that the meat, the following cooking in wine and marinating in oil, takes on a consistency very similar to that of tuna, the colour is a light hazelnut and the flavour and aroma are very similar to that of tuna. Dario Cecchini recommends serving it classically, with Tuscan beans and onion, but also with chickpeas or simply on its own.
"My most famous recipe. Boneless pork leg, salted and then boiled in white wine. Defatted and put in oil with truffle by my dear friend Luciano Savini. A Tuna of our Toscana. For tasting it just cut and season with extra virgin olive oil." Dario Cecchini
