Gastronomy Holidays Emilia Romagna

Everything you have ever known and love about Italian food comes together in Emilia-Romagna. It is the epicentre of mouth-watering traditional, culinary excellence. The name Emilia-Romagna is a legacy of Ancient Rome, Emilia is derived from the Via Aemilia, the Roman road connecting Rome to northern Italy.  Today it’s still a relatively unknown and unexplored part of Italy, especially considering it’s one of the wealthiest and most developed regions in Europe!

This Romanesque, renaissance region of northern Italy is home to some of the most well-honed culinary delights that Europe has to offer!  Products so famous that their names bear their origins all around the world: Prosciutto ham from Parma, Balsamic vinegar from Modena, the black truffle of Frageno, the porcini of Borgotaro, parmesan and of course, bolognaise sauce from Bologne, they all hale from this corner of Italy whioc is only half the size of Yorkshire!

In the trattorias on the streets of Parma you will enjoy the traditional fare for which, not just the region, but the whole of Italy is justly famed - Lasagne, Tortellini, Cannelloni and Ravioli all have roots in Emilia-Romagna. 

So come and emmerse yourself in the best of Italian gastronomy on our trip to Emilia-Romagna...where you will visit producers of some of the local ingredients, make your own ragu sauce in the traditional way, bake your own oven-fired pizza and compliment these tastes with intense ruby red and aromatic white wines from the cellars of the Colli di Parma created in the vineyards of the Parma foothills. Put quite simply, the place all the famous great Italian food comes from!
