Emilia & Po Valley

Emilia Romagna is a one of a kind Italian region where the concentration of top-notch culinary products is hard to believe or describe. The people that we bring together are the undeniable cream of this extraordinary region and its talents: Massimo, Teresa, Italo, Luigi - Culatello, Parmigiano, Balsamic and truffles. Walking tour, in Modena and Bologna, through shops and markets - vibrant and fun places where locals and chefs alike, select their produce. More action expects in Alessandra’s old-style Romagna kitchen or with Michelin-starred chef Alberto: slow cooked broth with fresh tortellini, truffle and game, a basket of artisan breads and a glass of Pignoletto. “We all work for this sort of a dream. I mean, the fantasy is to be sitting in a table like this, eating freshly made pasta, drinking wine this good and looking at this. This is what every sensible people in the world wants. And you have it. You’re making me very happy.” Anthony Bourdain on Emilia
