Benvenutil Bread, along with olive oil and meat, is a staple food in Tuscany. The great 13th century poet Dante Alighieri, exiled in Ravenna after being banished from Florence by the "Black Guelph" faction in 1302, remarked upon "the saltiness of other people's bread". Buck in the Middle Ages the Tuscans were in fact baking their rustic bread "pane sciocco" without the addition of any expensive salt making the point that there is no need to add salt to bread since its ultimate purpose is to accompany salty specialties such as sausages, cheese or meat dishes. To this day, pane toscano remains saltless although Tuscan bread specialties include many varieties of.flour blends, ingredients and shapes. Along with bruschetta, crostino toscano remains one of the favorite Tuscan appetizers, easy to prepare and sure to be enjoyed by all.
