KAPOWY! Here we are gobbling 3.69 pounds of goodness cooked over red-hot coals at a place called Trattoria Fita in a town called Borgo Tossignano about 16 kilometers away from Imola, Emilia-Romagna region, Italy. This bit of char-grilled meat is a dish known as Fiorentina Bistecca, aka, Florentine Beefsteak, and it is absolutely wonderful. . .thick, juicy, clean, simple, delicious, and cooked to a super-delectable medium-rareness that brings out all of the meaty flavor that we want when eating beef. . .mmm, aaaahh!
I have had many things called Fiorentina Bistecca before, but this one is the first to really live up to what this dish is supposed to be according to my reading, experience, and exploration. . .never had a more perfect piece of meat in my life. . .please come to Trattoria Fita in Borgo Tossignana–it’s a bit of a trek. . .eat this meat. . .wash it down with some red wine. . .then you can die a contented soul. Thank you, Riccardo. . .salut!
I send you glorious vibes from Trattoria Fita. . .feel them. . .they will make you big and strong.
