NEW FEATURE Extra balsamico tastings and inner world visit to the family of makers
Nick and Cate were incredible at putting together a customized half-day tour for my wife and me which included touring a cheese factory and a balsamic vinegar producer. Nick did all of the planning logistics before we arrived and Cate was an excellent tour guide!
She was so accommodating when we got delayed in traffic coming from the airport and took time to take special diversions at each stop when it was of interest to us. At the end of our tour, she also arranged for a very special lunch for my wife and me at the Ristorante Cattini (please see my review of that restaurant as well!) I would highly recommend Food n Walk Tours to anyone considering booking a Parma food tour!
We serve our clients’ consistent request … ”We want a close-up view of the makers and their traditional process”
Have you wanted to see these guys make the King of cheese for a while now?
When you arrive at the Parmesan workshop you will first enter the cooking room where you will see the maker and his assistant moving quickly and in silence like a choreographed routine, the warm cream milk assails. The 8 copper vats of the world’s finest milk will be steaming, sending a sweet cream dairy aroma into the air.
Start your day with us in these pages.
Discover how “the King of all cheese” is made. It is prepared in the very same way just as the inventors the Benedictine Monks would have wanted… You’ll see first hand the “making” it, the salt pools and the “wheel cathedrals ripening rooms”, walls of cheese!! thousands resting in the same place!..
Just the drive through the regal Langhirano valley is enough to set alight your interest in the Ham makers workshops.
Probably the first thing you’ll notice is the cleanliness of the workshops and the fantastic aromas that develop through each maturing hall.
You will learn some amazing secrets about the finest ham in the world. Then you will taste them!!
