Our last meal of 2019. was nothing extravagant but we will sure remember it. 🙂
Our visit to Bologna ended with a visit to the largest food park… in the world – FICO.
Although Bolognese cuisine is not very much different then that of Modena or any other city in Emilia-Romagna, but since it has a long and important part of Italian history, it deserves a text on its own.
With our busy Italian schedule last year, we actually had no more than one day to visit Bologna, so instead of wandering around I booked a free walking tour through a web site called guruwalk. Little did I know at the time that our guide would be a Croatian girl.
What are the chances your tour guide gives you the food recommendation that’s already on your restaurant list? If you have prepared yourself for your food trip, big. And we assure you, Debeli did an excellent job when it came to the selection of the trattorias and osterias in Emilia-Romagna.
Well, the best way to know the details is to visit a parmigiano factory. And the Emilia-Romagna is full of them. Especially the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, the part of Bologna west of Reno, and Modena (all in Emilia-Romagna) as well as the part of Mantua in Lombardy that lies south of the river Po.
We have eaten, tried and savored more than we had seen in Modena, but that was all part of the plan.
Having only three days in Amsterdam meant we won’t be able to visit and eat in as much restaurant we would like to, so Debeli had a very difficult task to fulfill. He had to do a thorough research and a tough choice between choosing our dinning places. But he did an excellent job. As usual.
Thai cooking class was one of the last things we did in Thailand, just a day before returning from Bangkok to Oslo.
From Krabi to Phuket we came across the Island of Phi Phi. With a ferry ⛴️
