A trip along the hills of Montalbano is also a journey around a world of ancient and modern tastes. "Brigidino" di Lamporecchio is a typical sweet made of a small crisp wafer and its name comes from the nuns devoted to Santa Brigida, a saint from Sweden, a tireless traveller, a religious pilgrim who came several times to Tuscany.
In Lamporecchio during the annual summer event there is a fair rightly dedicated to "il Brigidino" where you can find these sweet and thin wafer.
In the territories of Larciano and Monsummano Terme the production of typical Tuscan cold cuts (salami, finocchiona and prosciutto) is flourishing, not to mention mozzarella, ricotta and other milk products. All this should be eaten with a slice of typical Tuscan bread, home made and salt-less.
