Small group 2 gourmet food tour with pasta making class and gourmet lunch. The best of your culinary vacation in Italy.
We are proud to offer our 2 gourmet food tour from Modena plus pasta making class, the day will evolve around between visits to the Parmesan production and balsamic vinegar producer with tasting. The tour will include detailed visits to Parmigiano Reggiano production and a traditional balsamic vinegar producer with tasting of vinegar of several ages and special reserves.
When and where?
This tour leaves exclusively from Modena station at 8 am, hotel pick up from Bologna is charged extra.
Modena is only 20 minutes from Bologna and Modena produces Parmesan cheese and Balsamic vinegar, while Bologna does not producer any of these products, so staying in Modena makes sense.
What do I see on the 2 gourmet food tour and cookery class?
We will take the guests to a Parmigiano cheese dairy from Modena train station and provide transport for the whole day with an authorised English speaking guide. At the cheese dairy our guests can see the full production of the Parmesan. This visit lasts approximately 90 minutes. At the end of the tour you will be able to taste this incredible product.
After the cheese production the small group will be take to a Modena traditional balsamic vinegar producer, there the visit will last proximately one hour. Your guide will explain in detail how this famous PDO product is made. You will also able to taste several ageing of the product with further explanation how to match the vinegar with food.
Gourmet food crawl with Modenese style lunch.
After the parmesan and balsamic vinegar tour your guide will take you on a food crawl tour of Modena to taste some of the best flavours of Italy. We will walk through the cobbled and porticoed streets of Modena sampling ancient Italian flavours, such as gnocco fritto and tigelle. The tour will end with lunch in the main piazza in Modena.
