Chocolate at Palazzo

Sunday lunch only for gourmets

Sunday November 26th we organize a special Sunday lunch, or the so-called pranzo della domenica, with only dishes made with chestnuts; from appetizers to cakes every plate is going to be made with Marroni chestnuts, that are one of the main ingredients of local cuisine. Most of the recipes we’re going to prepare come from the cookbook of historic chef Martino, who used to prepare a different recipe every day.

Every dish is going to be paired with the local craft beer Lom, made with chestnuts. Cost per person 65€, more details here.


Reservation for the chocolate workshop and Sunday Chestnuts Lunch is mandatory, in order to guarantee the best and most intimate experience possibile to our guests. A guided tour to Palazzo Torriani is included in every experience and don’t forget to check our special offers for your stay in Tuscany.
