Full description

Meet your expert guide at Roadhouse Restaurant in Parma, on Viale delle Esposizioni. 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. Finish the tour with a tasting of this exquisite cheese. Continue to the medieval village of Torrechiara for a photo opportunity by its romantic castle. Then, travel to one of Parma's family-run ham factories producing the famous Prosciutto di Parma.

There, you can enjoy a lunch based on the typical products of the region at a farm-to-table restaurant. Enjoy Parmigiano, prosciutto, local cold cuts, a typical filled pasta dish (tortelli di Parma), and homemade cakes. Pair your lunch with delicious local wines like Lambrusco and Malvasia.

Guide Emmannuella connaît bien son sujet. Les deux fabriques nous ont bien accueillis. C’était super de découvrir comment ces succulents produits sont faits. Nous recommandons fortement cette activité. Seul bémol, nous avons eu un peu de difficulté à trouver le lieu de rencontre avec la guide. Un endroit plus précis aurait été apprécié.
