Finding a place for my birthday dinner is always challenging.
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.
Ligurian cuisine is most notable for its pesto Genovese, but trust me there is so much more than that.
When I started planning these surprise birthday trips to Italy, I immediately knew Genova would be high on the list. It’s one of those cities that are both rich in culture and history as well as food and scenery. It’s where the Italians come to vacay and international tourists to eat.
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.
Fifteen minute car drive from Le Roncole, direction Parma, lies small town of Fontanellato.
