    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 ...

    ... year old sister Gabrielle and another person, Lucianna, we learned how to make the dough, roll it out, and shape tortellini, then we cut tagliatelle. Gabriella monitored all of our cutting and as Susan has said, none of us passed muster. We learned that making pasta is a labor of love. We made Bolognese sauce and then got to feast on it all with much wine.

    Another day we drove to Modena and walked the ...

    Today we left the villa early and started our 4 hour drive toward Emilia-Romagna and Parma. We stopped at a rest stop off the autostrada at the half-way point--it was unlike any rest stop we have in the States. A quick coffee and some shopping later, we were on our way to Parma for lunch. We had a "light lunch" (by Italian standards) at Osteria della Stazione Felino, a lovely restaurant with fantastic food. We started with a pastry filled with ...

    ... nav has been a blessing but told us to turn right in middle of a tunnel as we approached Como so had to resort to old fashioned sign reading until sat nav had recovered herself! Gripped door handle hard during final stage of journey as dark and roads very twisty. Road kept going down to single track with no notice and Italians seem to drive like made men. Well done Stu! Lovely welcome at Grand Hotel Tremezzo and we needed the bottle of Prosecco they gave us! Will await the view ...

    ... Room was basic but clean and bed very comfy. Went to restaurant attached to hotel that we had booked for dinner at 7.45pm. Very Italian but luckily one lady could speak some English so we managed. Stu likes their local sparkling red wine so we may have a wine convert! Stu had steak and I tried a local chicken dish followed by tiramisu and a cream puff. Well ready for bed then and the factory tour ...
