Il Ciaffignone, the maremman crepe

Il Ciaffignone, the maremman crepe

With a central position, Manciano is a perfect starting point for exploring the countryside: Pitigliano, Montemerano and Saturnia hot springs. It's a land of strong rural traditions and great pecorino cheese, perfect for stuffing Ciaffagnoni, local savoury pancakes made with water, eggs, flour and salt. When Caterina de Medici married the Duke of Orleans in 1533, second son of the king of France, she took cooks and pastry chefs with her and packed her suitcases with extra-virgin olive oil and pecorino cheese. She took to France the smells and aromas of Tuscan cuisine and her recipes were enjoyed to the point that they became actual French specialties. Local people said that one of Caterina's cooks were from Manciano, so ciaffagnoni could be the ancestors of the famous French crepes.
