about

If you are looking to travel to Italy for the sole purpose of eating the best Italian food out there, Emilia Romagna is the place to go. Home to Italian classics like Parmigiano Reggiano, Prosciutto di Parma, and traditional balsamic vinegar, it is a land where food history and tradition is part of the life blood.

Emilia Romagna is home to some of the most famous food cities in Italy, including Bologna, Modena, and Parma. It also hosts Ferrari, Lamborghini, and more. Emilia Romagna is the land of slow food and fast cars. 

Author Amber Hoffman, of the award-wining culinary travel blog With Husband In Tow, explains the intricacies of the gastronomy of the region, along with how to taste the best food and wine in Emilia Romagna! 

The Food Traveler’s Guide to Emilia Romagna can help you plan the perfect trip through the breadbasket of Italy. In a full 250 pages of culinary guide book yumminess, the guide walks through the key products of the region, and how to taste them. Yes, that means there is an entire chapter on topics such as cheese, meat, pasta, and even gelato! Part II of the book explores the wines of Emilia Romagna, and how to taste them.

If, by the end of Part II you are not either: 1) drooling all over your copy of The Food Traveler’s Guide to Emilia Romagna; or 2) booking your flight to Bologna, Part III includes the practical side of exploring Emilia Romagna for food. This includes how to get to Emilia Romagna, how to get around, where to stay, and, most important: Where to eat in Emilia Romagna!

It's a road map to exploring the best food in Italy!

Editorial Reviews

This book is the perfect travel companion for those who want to eat their way through Emilia Romagna. But it’s so much more than just an informational guide: it’s for any food and wine lover who wants a deeper understanding about Italian products. You can practically taste the delicately sliced tartufo and ricotta-stuffed cappelletti through the pages!• Annette White, Chef and Owner of Sugo Trattoria and Author of “Bucket List Adventures”I met Amber (and her husband, Eric) during their second “official” visit to Emilia Romagna—the visit that made them fall in love with the region and the food here. I honestly have never met someone that is not from the region who is as passionate about the food and wine as Amber. The fact that she truly cares about every single detail of her food and wine discoveries is a guarantee that what you read in this book will be the best way for you to go and experience Emilia Romagna to the fullest!• Nick Montemaggi, iambassador and #EuroFoodTrip campaign“The bible to discovering Emilia Romagna through food and wine!”• Nelson Carvalheiro, Author of “The Portuguese Travel Cookbook”This is the essential guide book for anyone going to Emilia Romagna, but especially a food and wine focused traveller. I only wish I had a book like this before my first visit to Emilia Romagna. This book is all you need to make your trip a perfect one.• Akasha Richmond, Restauranteur, chef, and owner of AR Cucina, Los AngelesI was hooked on this book from the beginning. What I thought would be merely a food and wine book became a complete experience for all my senses: I could smell the Parmigiano cheese, taste the balsamic vinegar, and feel the passion of the people. If food was a religion, Amber would be the bishop—she seems to know every detail of every single corner of Emilia Romagna’s gastronomy, then spreads it on the pages of this book with professionalism, personal opinions, and love. I have been to Emilia Romagna on several occasions, but now I can’t wait to return to discover it from a completely different angle.• Jaume Marin, Marketing Director, Costa Brava Tourism and #EuroFoodTrip campaign
