Food and more food!
Me and partner are coming to Tuscany in Nov, Terricciola to be exact, And since i think i have a small ocd for planning, i want to plan well ahead especially on where we will find the best food, and by best food I mean home made - non tourist local restaurants, and so one of my questions is what are the best places? we are renting a car so we can travel to anywhere. We also want to visit winery and salumi places, we really wanna get a taste of the real tuscany and avoid the typical tourist spots! if anyone can give us some help we would be very glad
Thanks in advance

arriving in November
There's no problem trying to be prepared
Since you are arriving in November, I will say in the countryside you will definitely find more restaurants that cater to the locals since the larger part of the tourists have already come and gone. I suggest that you check out the events for Novemeber and make a plan to go to some of the sagras - these events are planned for tourists...but for the Italian tourist so there is a difference in the menus - which are pretty authentic to the local specialties.
Read this article to understand what a sagra is: http://www.discovertuscany.com/eatin...n-tuscany.html
The calendar will be updated in October - however many of the events are annual so you can start planning now for which ones interest you the most!
