Logaioli were the people who took care of the vegetable gardens for the families that owned large estates in Tuscany. They lived in rustic houses in the hills but to the people who only had bread and onions, the Logaioli were privileged workers because their dispensas were loaded with all the produce form the rich landowners’ gardens. They had such a large variety of vegetables that their wives invented a new soup every day. This is one of the beautiful ones.
