Our first stop will be at a dairy which makes Parmigiano Reggiano, or Parmesan, considered the king of cheeses.
Produced within a limited area that includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Bologna, the cheese is handmade by craftsmen using traditional methods. During our visit, we will see all the steps of producing the cheese and taste the results.
Afterwards we will visit a maker of traditional balsamic vinegar. Known locally as black gold, this vinegar is produced from cooked grape juice and aged in wooden barrels for at least 12 years.
Now it’s time for lunch, so we’ll just go on a few yards to a nearby inn where we can get a really good local meal. Yes, the menu will include home-made tagliatelle.
Sadly, it’s time to say goodbye, our driver and guide will bring you back to the hotel.
What about it then? Coming along?
