Typical dishes and products

Like all Tuscan cooking, Prato's cuisine is a simple one, based on traditions deriving from humble dishes in which the cooks tried to utilise every edible part of their ingredients so as to waste as little as possible. Among the most original local products are the mortadella of Prato and the figs of Carmignano. Delicious sweets abound, with curious anecdotes and histories not to be forgotten: Prato biscuits, "mantovana", "pesche", the "amaretti" of Carmignano, the "Carmignanini", the "zuccherini" of Vernio and the "sassi" (literally, stones) of Calvana. Not to speak of extra-virgin olive oil, to be sampled fresh on the typical bread of Prato - the "Bozza" - and the wines of the Carmignano area, famous and protected already since the time of the Medici, as well as the Pinot Nero of Bagnolo.
