If you read my last post, you’re already familiar with the most famous dishes and ingredients in Ligurian cuisine. Now it’s time to give you some tips on where to eat and what to order if you ever find yourself in the capital of Liguria region.
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.
If you have read my last post, you could see the real reason of our visit and stay in Modena, but even if Osteria Francescana is not something that would interest you, Modena, I’m sure, would.
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.
