A favorite on menus throughout Tuscany is arista alla Fiorentina-a prime cut of pork that is rubbed or stuffed with an aromatic blend of Mediterranean herbs and roasted to savory perfection. This classic dish derives its name from the Greek word aristos, meaning "the best." According to culinary lore, arista was first served in 15th-century Florence at a summit of Roman Catholic and Greek churches. The succulent pork roast so delighted the Greek clergymen that they began to chant, "Aristos, aristos, aristos."
