One stop on the Italian Days Food Experience will have you touring a facility for the production of authentic prosciutto di Modena among others. The hams produced in Modena are of superior quality, equal to that of their famous neighbor Prosciutto di Parma, only with less production. Which is, in my opinion, to their advantage. Lower production means less pressure to produce, and a better tasting ham.
IF YOU GO
The Italian Days Food Experience will ruin you for forever for Italy's most iconic foods, but in the best possible way. Alessandro puts his heart and soul into making it much more than a tour. You'll be a Parmigiano cheese convert and a balsamic lover after the day is done. Book your tour online or at the Bologna Welcome infopoint in Piazza Maggiore.
