But what gifts should we bring to our relatives? What is so special from Italy that deserves a long trip from Bologna?
Since I can't bring Pisa tower or Venice or Rome etc aka arts, I decided to pick typical food.
Here's what we bought:
- fettuccine pasta
- lasagna pasta
- tortellini pasta
- ragu tomato sauce alla bolognese
- amatriciana tomato sauce
- balsamic vinegar from Modena
- spicy pork sausage
- not spicy pork sausage
- parmiggiano reggiano cheese (the real one!)
- mortadella ( aka baloney aka bologna ) sausage
- some tasty chocolate
I really would like to drink Spumante wine during my wedding, but I guess it's not welcome ;-)
You know what?
Maybe it would be nice to sell Italian foods around the world: pizza? ice-cream? pasta? wine? Yummy! I'm just stating the obvious...
Dreams... It's better I stop writing about food, I'm starting to starve ;-)
BTW, take a look to this Wikipedia article to learn about Italian food and come here in Italy to enjoy your holiday!
