A gourmet stroll in Parma
The town of Verdi and Toscanini is to be savoured in small doses, like an operatic aria, or rather like a glass of nicely chilled Lambrusco served on the terrace of a trattoria... Parma, with all due respect to Milan which would gladly pinch its title, remains THE gastronomic capital of Italy.
Culatello by the Spigaroli Brothers
Do you know what the Rolls Royce of Italian ham is? With scarcely 15,000 hams produced by approximately fifteen producers per year it has to be the Culatello di Zibello. The variety made by the Spigaroli brothers, whose ancestors were the suppliers of Giuseppe Verdi, is worth making an excursion in order to sample it.
