Laura offers an engaging and entertaining tour sure to delight any foodie. To say this was a highlight of our trip is a simple fact. Laura’s territory is the capital of Emilia Romagna’s “Food Valley”, and she shows it off effectively. The three venues she chose were all wonderful, and she cheerfully helped us pack the 185 Euros worth of Parmigano-Reggiano we bought into our roll-aboards in the cheese facility’s parking lot. Laura, you’ll be happy to know that every bit of it, along with two bottles of Marco’s balsamic vinegar, made the trip safely all the way back to Birch Bay, Washington State. Laura adjusted her schedule to pick us up early, get us to the cheese facility in time to watch the charming “Big Cheese” and his two sturdy assistants process some Parmesan, and finally to drop us at the train station in time for our 2:30PM train after a delightful lunch. Laura is fluent in English, she possesses great knowledge tempered with a good sense of humor, and she made our morning with her fly by. We highly recommend her services as a guide to anybody interested in a personalized tour of one of the world’s food capitals.

We explored Parma: it’s Parmesan cheese, ham, and balsamic vinegar. It truly was the highlight of our trip to Parma (and one of the best things we’ve done in Italy). Laura was responsive and flexible, and extremely nice and knowledgeable. This tour is a must for those who are into food and want to understand the rich culture and culinary practices that characterize this very charming city.

Laura was amazing and this was a perfect find. She was so sweet, super knowledgeable, and clearly had an inside connection to all the producers that we visited (which I loved). She easily accommodated finding a lunch restaurant with gluten-free options for me too. This was one of the highlights of our trip - thank you Laura!
