About Aurora Baccheschi Berti

Aurora Baccheschi Berti

If you can’t manage to stay at Aurora Baccheschi Berti’s luxurious 12th-century castle-cum-resort she owns with her husband, Carlo, you can still get a taste of what you’re missing via the recipes in her book, My Tuscan Kitchen: Seasonal Recipes from the Castello di Vicarello.   The former textile designer relies mainly on ingredients grown on her estate to create traditional Italian dishes made with a slightly lighter hand. @CastleVicarello

Sautéed Chicken Liver on Toast
