My school will be starting a series of public food and wine dinners.

I have been selected to lead an event that covers the foods and wines of Tuscany.I am asking my friends and colleges here on cheftalk to help be develop a menu.5 courses, 70 people, late September (Harvest time)

What are your favorites? What foods do you think of when dreaming about early autumn in Tuscany?

BTW, the cost is $47 per person including wines and 95 % of the food will be prepared by students, and served by students.
TIA

An adaptation of the Splendid Table Fall Menu...

Bruschetta with Wild Mushrooms
Gnocchi Verde
Herb-Scented Tuscan Pork Roast with Roasted Squash Puree
-or-
Beef Pot Roast with Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes
Fresh Green Salad (to cleanse palate)
Rustic Rosemary Apple Tart

Sounds fun!

On the menu currently at my favorite Italian place: Ravioli filled with double cream. The sauce is a chicken stock reduction finished with butter and a tiny bit of truffle oil. Garnish is micro-basil, although basil chiffonade would also work.
