Emilia-Romagna Travel Guide for food lovers (Bologna, Forlimpopoli, Faenza, Modena, Parma) in Italy Travel Food Video Transcript:
So good morning from Italy!
We are back in Italy. This time we are exploring the region of Emilia-Romagna and we will spend three days here eating, drinking, exploring. Yes. Very exciting. This is a heavy food trip and I can not wait to eat as much Italian food as possible and also do some traveling. Yes, so we are starting things in Bologna and we will also be exploring some destinations, so along the etiquette.
So this afternoon in Bologna we are climbing Torre Prendiparte. This tower was built at the end of the eleventh century, twelfth principles and we are supposed to have some amazing views of the city from the top.
You can actually stay inside the tower and it has some pretty cool accommodation
So we got to the top. We had to climb twelve stories on rickety wooden stairs to get here but the views are spectacular even in the rain.
So this morning we're going to cook. We are currently in Forlimpopoli. This is the birthplace of Pellegrino Artusi and basically created the first Italian cookbook in Italian. Let's prepare some of the recipes in that cookbook.
So we saw the demonstration. Now is the time to create our own pasta. It's a hundred grams of flower to an egg.
So I have my dough now is the time I guess they do it in different ways.
So this is Mio Laboro. My hard work with pasta to feed an army.
Time to eat. We got to eat the pasta we made.
So we just finished a wonderful lunch, but the day is not over yet. Then we are paying a visit to vineyard and wine, so let's take a look and see what we can find. Yes, so this place is called La Palazza to drink wine.
So last night we spent an agrotourism and that's like a stay at home, but on a rural farm in a vineyard.
So this morning we visited Acetaia di Giorgio and we are learning about the tradition of balsamic vinegar.
Okay, so Brendan and Audrey are doing a taste test of balsamic vinegar.
So what did you think of that original traditional balsamic vinegar?
So for lunch today we're getting a little bit of luxury. We are currently in Antica Corte Pallavivina Relais. It is basically like this old fortress slash castle in Parma.
I'm walking through a ham tunnel. You have prosciutto, salami and some meats and cheeses.
So I am treating Frizzante Rosso and it is a traditional type of wine and if you look over here you can see that it is in a very traditional cup not a typical wine glass.
So this morning we are on a dairy farm learning everything about the Parmigiano-Reggiano. It has been great to see how the production and how it is stored.
Welcome to the world of Parmigiano Reggiano. Look at all this cheese
So we are vising the Enzo Ferrari Museum and in terms of all the things we have done on this trip this is going to be one of my favorites I think. And if you look up here the museum is actually shaped like the engine of a Ferrari so the actual museum design is really cool.
And because this is an Italian museum everyone is drinking coffee. I'm having ice cream. This flavor is called paradiso. I think it's mango.
Well, our time in Italy has come to an end. We are currently at the airport in Bologna enjoying a final lunch eating pizza.
This is part of our Travel in Emilia-Romagna, Italy video series featuring Italian food, Italian culture and Italian cuisine.
