Sagra della Bistecca – T-bone Steak Festival (Cortona)

Tuscan Sun Festival The “T-bone Steak Festival” (Sagra della Bistecca) is the most important gastronomical event in Cortona during the Summer, which takes place every year on the 14th and 15th August in the Parterre public gardens of Cortona, to celebrate the mid-August bank holiday with the good local cuisine.

On a 14-square-meters grill stoked with burning resinous coal, some chefs prepare succulent T-bone steaks of Chianina race and underdone, in respect of the old Tuscan tradition. These tasty T-bone steaks must go with excellent Chianti DOC wines to satisfy the palates of all the refined people who attend the festival in large numbers every year.

Tuscan Sun Festival The T-bone Steak Festival promotes even the sale of local and Tuscan typical products thanks to many gastronomical stalls, where you can buy the famous Pecorino cheese of Pienza, the cinta senese cold cuts, sauces and jams, wine, olive oil and the tasty cantucci biscuits.
