2013-07-11 11.16.29

If you decide to stay in Bologna for your holidays, it is a good idea to take one of our cookery classes that focus on the the local cuisine such as the art of egg pasta. The day starts as early as 9 am and the guests will meet the chef at a designated  point in the central Bologna. From there you will go to the the local market for a tour to buy the ingredients. We run the pasta making classes on most days (excluding Sundays and national holidays) and you can join an existing group or you can book the whole kitchen just for you, in the event that  you are travelling with your family or want to book an incentive activity for your company.

Once the group has purchased the ingredients , the chef will take you to his state of the art and brand new kitchen. Of course these classes are hands-on and all participants will prepare the dishes on the menu’. As Bologna is known world-wide for its fresh egg pasta such as tagliatelle alla Bolognese, the student will prepare these traditional dishes. So rest assured that you will have to mix egg and flour to obtain some springy dough that will end up cut in thin stripes.
The students will have lunch in the kitchen and of course you will be eating what you have been preparing that morning.

Lovely food tour and cooking class

Hi Gabriele:

I wanted to let you know what a great day we had this past Friday on our tour with Jacamo. (Probably not spelling it right) He was very nice and explained everything to us. It sure gives you a new appreciation when you are slicing cheese. :) Our tour ended with him taking us to the vineyard for a tour and lunch and there, Paolo, the owner could not have been more nicer. It was a perfect ending.

Please let Jacamo know what a great job he did and how much we really appreciated it and his knowledge

Food tour in Modena

The website is well structured and we received a prompt answer to all questions. Gabriele supported us with all information we needed and the organization before the trip was excellent.
We had an air conditioned van, which was very relaxing through the whole tour. The first stop was the parmigiano production, which was very impressive and interesting. We could learn and especially see all the different steps and even taste the various aged parmigiano. The second step was the balsamic vinegar tasting. Finally the meat part was interesting in the museum but we hoped that we also could see more about the production and their work, but the tasting was delicious. In overall we had a very informative and well accommodated half day with our guide

Fantastic Tour!!

It was great experience! We visited Parmesan cheese production, Balsamic vinegar farm, Ham museum and Farmer's lunch. Our guide gave us a detailed explanation, we were very satisfied. An excellent tour for a reasonable price, highly recommended.

Gourmet tour

Nous sommes une famille de cinq et nous avons adoré notre expérience. Les trois endroits étaient choisis judicieusement. Notre guide était très généreuse et super gentille. Nous recommandons ce tour ( parmesan, vinaigre balsamique et jambon de parme).

Tour Extraordinaire!

My family felt our first trip to Italy must include a tour of a Parmesan Cheese Factory so when I stumbled on this website several months ago I had no idea what I treasure I found! From the moment I submitted a request for the tour, my experience with Emilia Delizia was first rate. Gabriele provided excellent customer service by patiently answering all my questions to guide me through the selection and reservation of our Foodie Delight Tour. Paolo, our driver, was prompt, cordial and knowledgeable about the processes we were observing and the area in general conveying loads of information with his well-developed English speaking skills. Our stop in Modena fell on a Saturday so we were quite fortunate to end up with a private tour which allowed us to have a nice, personal interaction with the people at each site. Everyone was friendly, generous with the tastings and we never felt rushed to move along to the next location. Now that we have returned to the states, my family agrees this tour was a highlight of our 10 day trip. I was really looking forward to this excursion and am glad to report it exceeded my expectations.

Full custom super car factory tour

The tour was great - Paulo was very helpful

The timing of the stops were well planned, we had sufficient time for each of the sites and Paulo gave a good background throughout the tour (history, layout of factories, how vinegar was made etc)

Many thanks for the arrangement
