Full description
Meet your expert guide at Roadhouse Restaurant in Parma, on Viale delle Esposizioni. You will begin the culinary tour at an authentic producer of Parmigiano-Reggiano, discovering how the "King of all Cheeses" has been made in the same way since the Benedectine monks invented it centuries ago. You will see the making first-hand, as well as the walls of cheese, with a tasting at the end, of course. From there you will stop at the medieval village of Torrechiara for a photo opportunity by its romantic castle. Then, on to one of Parma's family-run ham factories producing the famous Prosciutto di Parma. Lunch will be based on the typical products of the region, at a farm-to-table restaurant: Parmigiano, Prosciutto as well as other kind of local cold cuts, a typical filled pasta dish (tortelli di Parma), and homemade cakes. All paired up with local wines like Lambrusco and Malvasia.

The guide was a kindly person that knows very well the region and the traditions. Don’t exitate if you realy want to know the parmegiano ham and cheese production and is history. The private tour is better bacause you have the guide explaining all exclusively to you…
