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 ⛴️
Dining in Krabi was way less exiting than Bangkok, but still very delicious.
Wherever we travel, we try to have some of the traditional and typical dishes of the region / city we’re in. Sometimes this turns into something completely different like when we were in Bangkok, where we visited an Indian restaurant, that has been named No 1 restaurant in Asia in 2018. No 5th in the world.
Debeli has always been fascinated with Thai cuisine, ever since he started to work professionally. At the beginning of his cooking career he was working with a Thai chef who infected him with soy sauce. Like literally, because Debeli ended in the ER after his body couldn’t digest high levels of MSG or monosodium glutamate (a flavor enhancer with an umami taste), so he dehydrated and had to be fed with a tube).
Eating in Rome was so decadent, that the old Romans would be ashamed. This whole trip was purely about the food. About finding the best and the traditional dishes. On our list there was cacio e pepe, suppli, trippa alla romana and so much more.
A typical Norwegian thing is brunost or brown cheese!
