A walking tour through the culinary corners of Parma
I am an Italian-Chilean journalist based in Parma, Italy. I have published a series of culinary books such as Patagonia Gastronomy, Chilean Poetic Cuisine and Valparaíso Gastronomy. Since 2019 I have lived in Parma, a beautiful city where I have developed this free tour that runs through its main attractions, with special emphasis on its rich gastronomic culture.
In this culinary walking tour I will show you the most pleasant corners of this ducal city of exquisite beauty. We will walk through the historic center visiting the places that show us the most authentic expressions of the cuisine of this place recognized as the Capital of the Italian Food Valley. In the tour I will tell you the history and present of Parma and how it is intertwined with the culture of food. We will also know more about the famous Parma Ham, Culatello and of course Parmigiano Reggiano, all these gastronomic excellences with the protected brand. I will also tell you about the Parmesan restaurants and their particular menu. Along the way you will get to know more of the variety of Parma sparkling wines such as Malvasia and Lambrusco, as well as Balsamic Vinegar. During this tour the typical pasta known as anolini, horse meat, pizza, sandwiches, coffee and homemade ice cream made with fresh Parmesan milk will also be very important. In Parma local entrepreneurship is also very strong and for that we will visit a small museum of perfumes where the famous "Violeta di Parma" stands out. This tour is not recommended for minors.
