It's again that time of the year when comforting flavors mix up with beautiful fall colors. It's time for family, time to gather, time to think the past year through and see what worked and what didn't. It's time to celebrate and give thanks for the love, the people in our lives — and for good food & wine!
Once a year we travel to Italy to stay up-to-date with the trends and get to know new suppliers, or visit longtime partners. One of this year's trip's highlights was Beni di Batasiolo Winery, located in Serralunga, Piedmont, land of graceful, aromatic and fruity wines.
Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley (covered by water and rice paddies), Lombardy is home to a wide range of landscapes, including breathtaking mountains, expansive rolling hills (famous for vineyards and wine) as well as its lakes.
In Italian, Piedmont means Ã¢â?¬Ë?at the foot of the mountain'. Originally inhabited by Celtic tribes, it was later absorbed by the Romans. In-the-know connoisseurs seek out Piedmont's white truffles, hazelnuts, and chocolates.
Also known as the Italian Riviera, Liguria is a narrow tongue of land in Northwestern Italy (bordered by France) between the Appennines and sea. The region includes impressive mountains and lovely rolling hills.
Emilia-Romagna, lying between the Apennine Mountains and the River Po is one of the most fertile regions of Italy. There are few regions in Italy more famous for food than Emilia-Romagna. Many of the Italian delicacies we all know and love come from this very productive region.
Marche is Italy's secret culinary region. Marche cuisine consists of truffles and robust cheeses from the mountains, tender hams and salame, and brodetto (fish soup). Olives are valued in Marche for more than just oil, and olive ascolane (olives stuffed with meat and herbs) is a favored dish.
