Today was "The Big Day"! We left our hotel at 5:15 am to get to a parmigiano reggiano producer located an hour north of Modena. We needed to plan our arrival to watch the entire cheese-making process. The cows are milked at 3:00am, and the process of making the large wheels of parmigiano starts a few hours later. The process starts with allowing the milk to rest so the cream settles to the top. The cream is then skimmed off and used to make butter. Rennet is added to the ...

Woke to the amazing view of Lake Lucerne which was promptly covered by fog in about 10 minutes! Amazing how quick the fog came down but thankfully by the time we were ready to go out the fog had lifted. We decided to explore the town and walked along the wooden bridge covered in flowers and found a cafe called Heini which served a great breakfast of a milky muesli bread, cheese, ham and croissants. Bought ...
