Think mostly Tuscans live in Tuscany? Think again. The Brits fell in love with Tuscany years ago and with the strong value of the pound, they began gobbling up the best parts of of this region. It is through their books and films that we have the romantic imagery of this most beautiful countryside in the world. Note: I am not condemning the Brits for living in Tuscany. They’re the smart ones and I plan to do it myself one day!
Chiantishire is the nickname given to the area of Tuscany where many English have bought homes or where they rent them as an escape from the dreary weather and stale palate of England.
This recipe has nothing to do with the British-Tuscan-implants themselves. I just love the name and think it goes perfectly with these blackberries cooked in Chianti.
