  • Happy Hour Aperitivo in Milan

    Published in Lombardia Food
    Taking an aperitivo in Italy has now become very fashionable in the main Italian cities, not least Milan. An aperitivo (or aperitif in English) is traditionally considered to be a pre-dinner drink, served to stimulate the appetite before a meal. At most bars throughout Italy, drinks are served with a bit of potato chips and olives to snack on. But, in many bars throughout Milan, the idea of an aperitivo has since grown to include enough food to serve as a replacement dinner.

Published in Lombardia Food
There are two main wine growing zones in the province of Brescia. The first occupies the slopes towards Lake Garda while the second is the the famous Franciacorta to the west of the provincial capital on the sweet slopes of the 'colline moreniche' facing Brescia and Lago d’Iseo. The name probably refers to the order or 'corti' of monks who cultivated the land and protected the town of Brescia from attack by northern barbarians.

Panettone for Christmas

Published in Lombardia Food
Panettone is the classic Christmas cake eaten across Italy during the festive period or holiday. Panettone is, in fact, a typical cake from Milan. Although there are several versions of its origins, this legend of how panettone was born is one cherished by the Milanese. The name, "Panettone" comes from "Pane di Toni," (or, bread of Tony), who was supposedly the kitchen boy who invented the dessert while working at the court of Duke Lodovico il Moro. A large Christmas eve banquet was being held by the Duke, during which the head-chef accidentally burnt the planned dessert. Somehow, Toni salvaged…

San Colombano Wine, Milan province

Published in Lombardia Food
The Colle di San Colombano are located due south of Lodi and the San Colombano d.o.c. wine is the only DOC wine produced in the province of Milano. The hills are surrounded, rather incongruously, on all sides by the lowlands of the River Po plain. Yet, the minerals absorbed from millennia of floods have left a terrain ideal for producing good wine.
