1. PROSCIUTTO DI PARMA AND OTHER SPECIALITY PARMA COLD CUTS
…Langhirano Parma Ham 100% natural, it’s in the air!
Passing by the massive Castello di Torrechiara we head into the valley of hams.
Torrechiara is a frazione of the comune of Langhirano, in the province of Parma, northern Italy. Built by Pier Maria II Rossi (1413-1482), count of San Secondo, between 1448 and 1460.
The edifice was thought not only as a defensive structure, but also as mansione for the count’s Pier Maria Rossi’s lover, Bianca Pellegrini, for which a famous hall, the Camera d’Oro (“Golden Chamber”) was built with decorations by Benedetto Bembo.
Scenes of the 1985 film Ladyhawke were shot at the castle.
It is the along these Apennine foothills that conspire to create the unique conditions necessary to cure only genuine Parma Ham.
They say just salt, air and time is needed…
Please Note: most days the Prosciutto workshop is a buzz with activity – On weekends this may not be the case. We have access to the factory and will see all the processes for the gourmet Parma Ham.

We then head into Parma’s historical 13th century centre and the antique cellars of the Duomo Palazzo. Here we see how Balsamico is aged, how Prosciutto remains in Staginatura and how the local wines of Parma and Reggio taste!
