  • Modena

    I just got back from Modena, where we met the Modena oven producer. More on that later (and I am very happy to say that they are really good), but we also really ate well. Talking about food over lunch, we came up with the following list of food products that are created within about 20 miles of our restaurant:

    1. Prosciutta di parma/prosciutto di modena
    2. Parmegiano
    3. Balsamic vinegar
    4. Mortadella
    5. Tortellini
    6. Spaghetti bolognese
    7. Lambrusco

    That's a pretty impressive list; where else can you find so much famous food in such a small place. I had prosciutto as an appetizer, tortellini (ricotta with butter and sage) as a primi, and parmegiano-reggiano cubes with 20 year old balsamic vinegar for dessert -- all with a glass of Lambruso. A great espresso, then back to work. This is a chosen place.

      Me? I'd hire on as a lansdcape guy, body slave, pool boy, doormat, liege servant, boot scraper, anything. Don't pay me, just get me there and I'll be happy.
