Italia Regina: Food From Emilia-Romagna

Food from Emilia-Romagna via Italia Regina

Italy's Emilia-Romagna is home to tortellini, Grana Padano, prosciutto and and balsamico di Modena; I recreated the gastronomic experience at home in Cambridge with some local food, provided by Italia Regina.

- Strolghino di Culatello; dense pork salami, best served thinly sliced with bread and oil for dipping

- Delverde Penne Zita Rigate with Barilla Ragu alla Bolognese; classic penne, served al dente with bolognese sauce

- Parmigiano Reggiano; strong, salty aged cheese, best grated over a bowl of pasta

For a quick midweek supper, or a weekend lunch, serve the salami as a starter and the pasta and sauce, with grated Parmigiano as a main.

To make it into more of an occasion, match with some local wines:

Poderi dal Nespoli - Laithwaites
Pagadebit (£9.99) Expressive nose of melon and citrus peel, ripe lemony tropical fruits, sweet spice and grapefruit with minerality. Clean, pure and adept.

Il Nespoli (£14.99) Fresh ripe dark fruit with sweet oaky vanilla spice and leathery truffleyness; supple, firm texture.

Lambrusco - Marks & Spencer

Lambrusco Secco Reggiano NV (£9.00) sappy and vibrant with black cherry and blueberry fruit; fresh, dry finish. A fruited palate-cleanser.
