Is there such a thing? I'm leaving for Italy tomorrow and need recommendations.

Oh, IS THERE. Mozzarella di bufala! Super-fresh, oozing milk! For the rest, depends where you're going--every locality will have its own specialties.

Here is a list from iGourmet:

Many thanks. Florence, Venice and Rome. Gearing up for cheese and wine tasting mode.

Oh, so many. If there try real Parmesan cheese ("Parmigiano-Reggiano" - so very different from what they usually serve as Parmesan. Or Gorgonzola ( a lovely blue cheese.

But Italy is a real cheese country - all kinds of regional specialties.

As everyone else has said, there certainly is!

Have a fabulous trip! I've never been to Rome, but I loved Venice and Florence. Sono molto gelosa!

Sounds naughty, best be careful.

huhtikuu 1, 2011, 2:15pm

Ack, sorry, typo. Maybe because I was also thinking about French fromage.

#1 - How was Italy, and did you eat any cheese?

We had some bufala and some other unidentifiable good stuff. Gained 4 lbs. must have been good. Why does wine taste better there than here?

Why does wine taste better there than here?

The soil, the water, the air. All different.

huhtikuu 19, 2011, 3:18pm

But being on vacation helps too.

huhtikuu 19, 2011, 3:19pm

The wine they make tastes better there. I think they keep all the good stuff for themselves.

I've read certain wines don't travel well. Especially Italian wines, for some reason. Maybe it's all the jostling.
