At Toscana, our priority is to go one step further for our customers, linking land to plate in a very real sense by growing as much of our own food, stirring up scrumptious dishes for you using the freshest ingredients available. This is the reason why we love to nurture seasonal vegetables, herbs, salads and fruits at our farm-house in Co Wicklow. We use our own corn-fed hens eggs to make great filled pastas and delicious low fat and gluten free desserts. Locally sourced is the new buzz-word amongst Irish restaurants particularly in Dublin this year, But Toscana have been growing their seasonal produce for over a decade. At the heart of Toscana cooking lies a celebration of food that is fresh, local and unpretentious, elevating traditional modern cooking into flavours customers love. We atempt to bring old traditions alive in our cooking by pulling ingriedients from our soil to deliver quality to the plate.
To dine at our restaurant and enjoy our classic menus using fresh herbs and seasonal vegetables pulled from our farm-house for early bird, christmas lunch, dinner, lunch, midweek express and many more at Toscana restaurant in Dublin.
Here we have jotted down the health benefits of home grown produce:
They are a rich source of nutrition ingredient
Fruits and vegetables, during the course of their journey from farm to table, degrade considerably to be left with not much nutrients. On the other hand, our home grown produce is freshly cut, and immediately used for cooking, which helps retain its valuable vitamins and live enzymes. It is a proven fact that the longer it takes for organic produce to travel to our plates, the more vitality is lost on the way, no matter what steps were observed to grow or preserve them.
They offer a range of vital elements and flavours
We grow a variety of seasonal vegetables in our garden so that we can offer you healthy choices of food that are packed with delicious flavours and nutrients throughout the year. By focusing on growing organic products in an array of colours, flavours and varieties we maximize the flavours of food that is served to you at our restaurant in Dublin.
They are natural and organic, devoid of any harmful pesticides
Crop rotation and usage of organic manure in our garden give that balanced nutrition to the crops that cannot be expected of commercial produce. For example, cabbage grown in home gardens is reported to be rich in silica, which strengthens bones, hair and nails, and also checks Alzheimer’s. It cannot be found in cabbages procured from the supermarket.
