It’s finally here! After hinting for the last several months, and after a full year of hard work, my first culinary travel guide is here! Introducing The Food Traveler’s Guide to Emilia Romagna: How to taste the history and tradition of Italy . .
It’s no secret that Eric and I love Italy, and about three years ago, we discovered Emilia Romagna. Since that time, we have made five visits to the region, that encompasses Bologna, Modena, Parma, and more.
Why do we love this region so much?
Emilia Romagna is home to some of the best food, and food products, in the world. It is home to Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, traditional balsamic vinegar, and more. It is the home to Slow Food and Fast Cars. It is home to amazing wines, including world famous Lambrusco, and some Italy’s secret wines, including Negretto and Albana. It’s a unique region for wine tasting and tourism.
It almost kills me when people tell me they are traveling to Italy and limiting their trip to Rome or Venice. There is so much more to see of the country than the primary tourist spots. I do understand the draw to those cities. I understand wanting to see the Coliseum, or the Bridge of Signs.
But, after Rome and Venice, where should you travel to in order to experience the REAL Italy? Where should you travel to in order to eat the best food in Italy?

The obvious answer is: Emilia Romagna!
And, my new The Food Traveler’s Guide to Emilia Romagna can help you plan the perfect trip through the breadbasket of Italy. In a full 250 pages of culinary guide book yumminess, I walk through the key products of the region, and how to taste them. Yes, that means there is an entire chapter on topics such as cheese, meat, pasta, and even gelato! Part II of the book explores the wines of Emilia Romagna, and how to taste them.
If, by the end of Part II you are not either: 1) drooling all over your copy of The Food Traveler’s Guide to Emilia Romagna; or 2) booking your flight to Bologna, Part III includes the practical side of exploring Emilia Romagna for food. This includes how to get to Emilia Romagna, how to get around, where to stay, and, most important: Where to eat in Emilia Romagna!
We’ve shared so much of our journey eating and drinking in Emilia Romagna throughout this blog, but I wanted to offer something a little more. A road map to exploring the best food in Italy!

Congratulations. I immediately ordered 3 copies.
Thank you sooooo much for your support!
I just got your book recently and I am loving it! We also watched the Anthony Bourdain episode and decided we had to go visit! We have been to Italy many times but never to Emilia Romagna. Your guide is helping us plan our visit there this fall. Thanks!
Thanks for the kind thoughts! I hope you enjoy your trip. Email me or message us through Facebook, if you have any questions that we can help with.
I’m Italian and Emilia Romagna is home of very fine cuisine, despite not famous overseas as Sicily or Naples. Great job.
