January 27 is the Holocaust Memorial Day, in Tuscany there is a large jewish community and many events have been organised to remember. For this reason I have decided to publish a list of kosher restaurants in Tuscany. I thought it might be interesting to have a page dedicated to this cuisine that is so unique and at the same time so interwined to italian heritage and food culture.
