Delicious and Sustainable Tourism in Modena, Italy

A plate piled high with spaghetti, a piping-hot dish of lasagna, or a slice of your favorite pizza are never complete without a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. But, if your Parmesan cheese does not bear the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) seal for Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, then you’ll just have to hop a flight to the Emilia Romagna region of Italy to pick up a wedge of the real deal.

My wife and I recently visited the Hombre farms outside the city of Modena to sample authentic, 100% organic Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Couple this with another of the region’s PDO specialties, traditional balsamic vinegar, and this experience proves that tourism can be both sustainable and delicious at the same time.
