Parmesan, Prosciutto & Vinegar

Emilia-Romagna/Parma (Langhirano)

Your full day Gastronomic Tour will take you to see all of the treasures of the Emilia Romagna Region.
Your tour will begin with a stop at a local Parmigiano Reggiano producer, where you will experience the production of this “King of Cheeses” first hand. You will learn about the traditional phases of production that have remained unvaried for centuries and have been passed down through generations of cheese makers. The precise movement of the cheese maker and the passion that goes into making each wheel will stay with you for a long time. At the conclusion of the tour, you will be able to taste the parmesan along with other products from the dairy. (If you are not interested in watching the full production, departure time can be arranged differently and the tour will be shorter.)
The day will continue with a stop in Langhirano where you will see one of the most treasured gastronomic pleasures that has rendered Parma famous: Prosciutto di Parma. Prosciutto di Parma is a 100% natural and healthy product, almost fat free, rich in proteins and with a low percentage of cholesterol. In other words, an authentic guarantee. Prosciutto is a truly genuine gastronomic masterpiece which comes from a real passion for the product and fine attention to its making.
After a tour of the factory, there will be a sumptuous lunch right at the “Prosciuttificio” where you will have a taste of all local meats (prosciutto, culatello, coppa di testa, mortadella cotechino etc.), a pasta course then finishing up with a delicious homemade dessert. Lunch Payment direct to the Prosciuttificio.
Our last stop will be in Modena, home to some of the most exquisite brown liquid in Italy… Anyone who loves Balsamic Vinegar will tell you that the Balsamic Vinegar produced in the traditional way by vinegar producing families, is completely different to what is sold in most stores. Ageing the perfect vinegar in the wood flavored barrels is a process that can only be learned over time. You are in for a special treat as you visit a traditional acetaia and discover the secrets of making the perfect balsamic vinegar. Tastings will be available after the tour as well as products at wholesale prices.
