Rae’s ribollita

“After hearing about Rae’s romantic trip to Pisa with her husband-to-be (at the time), where they enjoyed a game-changing bowl of bread soup that they’ve often talked about since, but never managed to recreate, I just had to find a way – and in time for their 20th anniversary, too. After a little bit of digging, I managed to work out that the dish they ordered was listed on the menu as ‘Zuppa Toscana’ (often written this way on tourist menus for ease), but is in fact called ‘ribollita’. Ribollita was traditionally cooked to use up leftovers, but is so incredibly delicious that it’s often made in its own right these days. It literally means ‘reboiled’ and embraces the heart and soul of humble, Italian cookery. I hope that this recipe transports Rae and her husband back to that special meal in Pisa for many years to come. ”
