Food Lover's Guide to Emilia-Romagna

Food Lover's Guide to Emilia-Romagna | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

Every country has its food capitals, especially in Europe. France has Lyon. Spain has San Sebastián. And Italy has Emilia-Romagna, the root of all things delizioso in the country. The region’s center is its sophisticated capital at Bologna, while the surrounding landscapes include the grassy flatlands that breed pigs for the region’s prized hams, and the verdant Apennines Mountains, where prized truffles populate the valleys. The offerings in Emilia-Romagna, which sits just north of Tuscany, are so abundant, that it’s a good idea to savor it all with a food-focused tour operator, such as the highly regarded Tour de Forks, based out of the U.S., or Food Valley, located in Parma. Either way, whether going by guide or exploring on your own, let your appetite take the lead, and be sure to enjoy these 10 culinary treasures. [...]
