What you'll do
Are you a cheese lover? Would you like to know more about our regional dairy products, but you never had the chance? Do you like to try new cheese flavors? Then you can’t miss our 2 hours walking and tasting tour through the Emilia Romagna cheeses. Starting from the medieval Market, where you can find all the typical products of Bologna, I will introduce you to all the traditional cheeses that our beautiful region could offer, beginning with the king, his majesty Parmigiano Reggiano. You can learn how it's made and how many different kinds you can find, depending on the cow breeds. We will talk about Grana Padano and why it's so different from Parmigiano, we will discover Pecorino di fossa and squacquerone, typical cheeses of Romagna. At the end of the tour we will make a tasting to try them all and catch the differences among them, adding some jams, honey, malvasia wine jelly, caramelized figs and some drops of the real balsamic vinegar. The highlight of the tasting is the rare possibility to taste the Traditional Balsamic vinegar from Modena PDO 12 years old, completely different from what you have tasted before! Is your mouth already watering?
