DAY TRIPS & EXPERIENCES
Lambrusco has made somewhat of a comeback - served up on the menu of many a trendy pop-up Italian restaurant.
Usually plonked down on the table to accompany a hearty meal, or served as an aperitivo, Lambrusco is the wine of choice in Emilia - Romagna. Find out what happened when I paid a visit to Gavioli Antica Cantina, in the small town of Nonatola.
By virtue of it no longer being the 1950s, most people know what balsamic vinegar is. It has fast become a staple in many a middle-class household cupboard, whipped out and laboriously sloshed over salads across the nation. Actually, we’re doing it all wrong.
I paid a visit to Acetaia dei Cristo, which has produced this beautifully brown syrupy stuff for over four generations to learn all about it.
