Forbes: Italy’s Greatest Gastronomic Treasure, Emilia-Romagna


Ravenna is the home of the best food in Italy, and is also into slow food.  It’s worth staying a few days just to enjoy this and the quiet traffic free surroundings – just ask the hotel reception staff or Starwake staff for their advice and bookings. Note also that there are some very good local wines ( Snagiovese, Lambrusco ..)  and there is no need to go for price inflated Chianti Classico type labels.

The Best Italian Ice Cream

“Gelato” is the Italian word for ice cream, derived from the Latin word “gelatus” (meaning frozen). In English this word commonly refers to varieties of ice cream made in a traditional Italian style. Gelato can be made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring such as fresh fruit and nut purees. It is generally lower in calories, fat and sugar than ice cream.
