“People who love to eat are always the best”
But how much do we agree with this legendary American cook, writer and TV personality? I am sure that if she had taken a tour of our Food Valley she would have greatly appreciated what she would have tasted there.
Food Valley in Parma.
First of all, let’s try to understand what the Food Valley is and where we can see and taste it.
WHAT IS THE FOOD VALLEY
It is a limited area that includes a territory and particularly fertile cities that give rise to traditional gastronomic products, considered the national culinary cradle and which even become known throughout the world .
In Italy, the Food Valley is located in the Po Valley, in particular in the Emilia Romagna region. It includes the area from Parma to Modena. In this area there are excellences that deserve the name of Food Valley: about thirty products with Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) are registered. Furthermore, there are over two hundred products considered “traditional” so as to be recognized globally.
The Food Museums are located between Parma and Reggio Emilia, they are eight museums dedicated to the excellent food products of the Food Valley area.
