I am currently in Bologna Italy, in the region of Emilia-Romagna, and one thing I noticed so far, is that the Italians love to eat. They eat well, they eat often and they certainly eat huge portions. After a mere 7 days, my Asian stomach is just getting used to it.. almost.
prosciutto di parma, diced parmigiano reggiano laced with aged balsamic vinegar of Modena…
And Emilia-Romagna itself stretches from the wetlands of the Po delta down to the beach resorts of the Adriatic coast, and across fertile plains, from which loins great Italian cuisine is produced. This is THE ultimate foodie destination. I must say, 8 years ago I visited Italy but not Bologna, and I wasn’t as impressed with the cuisine as I am this trip. But that warrants a different post all together.
