Romagna never misses a chance to tantalise visitors’ taste buds. There are 13 local products have been recognised as PDO or PGI, in addition to a plethora of certified wines and traditional recipes, that have become well-known and reproduced around the world.
This is what guarantees the quality and flavour of our cuisine; qualities that turn every dish into a symphony of aromas. But Romagna has even more to offer: the region is home to 8 Musei del Gusto [taste museums] that pay tribute to local, traditional products which, like time machines, take you on a journey through the history of the traditions, techniques and communities behind these products, whose origins often lie in some distance past.
These food and flavour destinations include Casa Artusi in Forlimpopoli, which celebrates the father of home-style Italian cooking, and the Manifattura dei Marinati in Comacchio, the marinating plant. This is a great opportunity to explore the Eel Museum and to learn about the close ties that link the town of Comacchio with the local fish that inhabit the coastline. If you're looking instead to sample street food at the traditional chioschi [food kiosks] on the Emilia-Romagna Riviera, make your way to Rimini while some wine cellars in Romagna are in Ravenna and Forlì-Cesena.
These are just some of the food and flavour destinations to explore in Romagna, the invaluable heritage of a land that has always made good food a reason for being.
