In Parma, we met Carlo Pavesi one of the men behind some of the best prosciutto in the region: La Corte dei Neri ( lacortedeineri.it/ ). Carlo showed us his pigs, where he ages his ham, and of course his designer handbag store. Enjoy the tradition of Parma!
There is a very proud land and people that live and work and grow and eat on the green hills that straddle Spain and France and the Bay of Biscay. Upon visiting this rich culture, we spent a few days with a cider producer (Egoitz) and a cheese maker (Urtzi) to learn about their product and their pride. Enjoy!
