Growing local - Bencistà shortens its food chain

From spring 2016, Pensione Bencistà will enhance its countryside's roots, creating a new kitchen-garden to supply and delight the guests of the restaurant.

Bencistà's kitchen-garden will bring an exciting new facet to the visitors’ wellbeing by enriching the quality of the food-experience we offer our guests. On top of enjoying delicious Tuscan recipes on our stunning terrace, Bencistà’s clients will now be able to appreciate the countryside’s roots of the Pensione by eating freshly picked vegetables coming directly from our garden!

Moreover, while walking around the park, clients will have the opportunity to meet Chris, the kitchen-garden manager. Just out of his training in the Royal Botanic Garden of Kew, London, Chris will be available to offer explanations and demonstrations on the delicious fresh plants you will feed on in the restaurant.

Quality and sustainability of food have long been themes that deeply touch the Simoni family, and this year we have decided to actively participate in the growing discussion around the topic of food. Bencistà is planning to do so by returning to make productive use of the park surr
