Dopo questo incontro, le mie figlie hanno rifatto la crostata e le tagliatelle (buonissime!). Paola ci ha trasmesso la passione per la cucina, per i dettagli e per le tradizioni di Parma. Piacevolissimo il pranzo in compagnia e magnifica la casa. Complimenti!

We had a fantastic time with Paola, strolling through the city, visiting some markets, learning more about Parma. Their home is lovely and making tiramisu and tortelli with her was so much fun. She and Marco are delightful hosts! We’d return any time.

Cesarina from 2018Location: Parma    Languages: English, French, Italian

Cesarina Paola welcomes us to her characteristic apartment in the Oltretorrente neighborhood or, as they say in Parma, "di là dall'acqua" (beyond the river), in one of the hamlets that overlooks the Ducal park. It is a small paradise, a stone's throw from the center, immersed in the tranquility and greenery of the park.  At Paola's home, we discover her great passions: fashion (she is a fashion designer by profession) and cooking, an interest she has been cultivating since she was just a child. Our Cesarina loves to experiment and sample various types of dishes, enhancing the flavors of the local cuisine, adding a pinch of imagination to the classic tradition. "The locally produced staple foods are indispensable ingredients for me and dishes prepared at home transmit the warmth of my family."  Her favorite recipes? Erbazzone (a savory pie of greens), savarin di riso, tortelli d'erbetta al burro fuso e parmigiano Reggiano (herb-stuffed pasta pillows drizzled with melted butter and grated Reggiano parmesan), la Duchessa ... all served on a cheerful and colorful table. Paola takes care that all is perfect down to the minimum detail. "My profession always influences me!"
