THE BEST PARMIGIANO REGGIANO CHEESE TOUR

Parma FWT Parmigiano Reggiano cheese factory visit. Visiting a “Caseificio” is like going back in time. The “King of the cheeses” actually has very old origins and today, like 7 centuries ago, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is still made following the same traditional and genuine methods. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is protected by the European Union and can only be produced in a restricted area, the so called “zona tipica”, which includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, and a part of Bologna (left of the Reno river) and Mantova (right of the Po river). It takes about 2 hours to see the whole production, preferably early in the morning.

What Are Food Prices in Italy?

Dinner for two in a nice restaurant with a bottle or liter of wine averages $50.
Dinner for two in a nice restaurant with a bottle or liter of wine averages 28.00 euros.Not bad for the best food in the world!

Italy is home to a wide variety of fresh foods — pasta, sausage, figs and sun-dried tomatoes — that tourists travel across oceans to experience. Upon arriving in Italy, travelers are either delighted to learn that they can enjoy delicious food at low prices or disappointed with mediocre food at high prices. Food prices in Italy depend on where you dine or shop, but if you eat like a local, you will spend less than you do at home.

Eating Out

An individual on a budget can dine in Italy for around $20 a day, even eating out for every meal.

The typical Italian breakfast — caffe and pastry — costs $2.50 throughout the country. A take-out lunch, such as a calzone, sandwich or two pieces of pizza, runs from $3 to $6, as long as you avoid the tourist strip. In local trattorias, a hearty and substantial portion of pasta for dinner costs $10 to $15, as does a fixed-priced lunch with a first course — pasta, risotto or soup, main course, dessert and wine.

Ancelotti treats David Beckham to Tortelli in Parma…


 David Beckham’s love for Tortelli di Parma

It’s pretty common knowledge to us that ex Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti (we drive by his house to lunch) has a love of watching David Beckham tucking into Parma’s special food… Tortelli d’erbetta… it’s the same for my tourists as we take them to the same restaurant for the same delicious treat.

In fact Becks did come back last summer and they headed into the hills to one of Carlo’s other favourite restaurants … he has a few and it makes the now annual jaunt interesting for both apparently!

Here’s an extract from Ancelotti’s book, the_beautiful_games_of_an_ordinary_genius

Times Tables and Victory

Soccer is like having lunch with your friends: the more you eat, the hungrier you get. It’s the chef and the company that make all the difference; and I love the company of David Beckham. One evening, while he was playing for A. C. Milan, I invited Beckham to dinner in a restaurant in Parma. By the end of the evening, he refused to leave the restaurant. I kept insisting, and he kept pleading with me, “Please, one more course.” At one point I considered calling the police—handcuffs would certainly have stopped him from cramming any more tortellini into his mouth. In the end, I managed to convince him with these words: “Look, David, if we don’t leave this restaurant right now, I’m going to arrange another Spice Girls reunion tour.” Fourteen seconds later we were back in the car, hurtling back toward Milan, with the radio off. Open parenthesis: Let me say something about David. He was a big surprise to me, and a positive one. When he arrived in Italy, I expected to be dealing with a movie star homesick for Los Angeles, one of those players who thinks too much about gossip and fame and not enough about football. But I was wrong. He’s an impeccable professional, a workaholic, and an almost excessively well-mannered gentleman, with all the class of a very honest person. And then there’s the fact that he likes Emilian delicacies, which is obviously what matters most. Close parenthesis.

We never had time to go back, but one day I’ll return to Parma with my Chelsea players.
