    Parmigiano Reggiano and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

    ... We were fortunate enough to have a tasting of unaged cheese, and cheese aged for 12, 24, 40 and 60 months. We both agreed 40 months was the best. After the parmigiano wheels are made, the remaining whey is then heated again and a small amount of vinegar is added. It is mixed and heated some more, until new curds form. These curds now become ricotta cheese. ("ricotta" means "re-cooked" in Italian). The remaining whey is then used to provide the rennet for the next day's ...

    ... one might think Bologna is famous for its bolonga , it is actually it's mortadella that is a huge product. It's not called Bologna the fat for nothing!

    Tomorrow we say arrivideci to Bologna and head north to Bolzano and the Dolomites for 3 days. I will try to attach a couple of photos but not sure the mini IPad will cooperate. Caio until next time.

    Love,

    ... two nights. Dinner was at the oldest salumeria in Italy, established in 1605. A "salumeria" is a place where they make salami, but this was so much more. We had the most amazing dinner of gnoccho fritto (fried bread) topped with prosciutto or mortadella, a soup course of tortellini en brodo (tortellini in broth), and then guanciale (veal cheeks!!) with mashed potatoes. Dolce was a zuppe inglese (Italian custard) and a blackberry tart. It was all ...

    ... five days a week. Saw upholstery being assembled and the choices new owners can make to personalise their car. Finally, taken to Ferrari store and made small purchase, no not a new 458 Italian, .... A mug!!! Maranello is like a shrine to the Ferrari. Flags everywhere. People taking pictures and pipping their horns, allowing us to go in front of them on roundabouts! Now we have to hoof it to Lake Como as 4.30pm and have 165 miles to cover. Temp 21 degrees but cloudy. Rain on ...

    ... The town is so pretty with beautiful buildings and so clean. Made it back to hotel for 12 noon departure to Maranello. Drove through Gotthard Pass which took us above the clouds. Stu always wanted to drive this. Lots of hairpin bends. Scary for passenger! Very beautiful until fog descended. 272 miles later at 5.15pm we arrive at Locanda del Mulino, our hotel. Pleasantly surprised as looks well ...
