Between Modena and Parma: Parmesan cheese, Parma ham and balsamic vinegar
For this private gourmet tour we leave very early in the morning to go to a Parmigiano dairy in Reggio Emilia where we have the precious opportunity of seeing how they make the cheese, from the arrival of milk to the making of the big wheels.
We will also visit their storage (with dozens of cheeses) and will have a tasting.
The tour will continue with a visit to a Parma ham producer (Prosciutto di Parma is the best in the world!) where we will see the complete process that a pork leg undergoes from its arrival through all the various stages of maturation and will have a tasting. Then we will head to a nearby winery, where we can learn everything about their way of making wine and we can taste 3 of their best products together with a hearty, traditional lunch, with homemade pasta specialties from Parma, typical dishes and cakes.
Later we go to Modena to visit a balsamic vinegar site (under the roof), learn how the families make it in the barrels for 25 years and have some tastings to understand the astonishing difference with the industrial one. We will be back around 5pm.
