How it started – a spark of passion for fine Parmesan
When I first met my wife Caterina in London, and she told me she was from Parma I thought … hmmm not where that smelly Kraft cheese powder comes from? When we arrived in her home town and she sat me down at her mama’s family table passing me a hunk of this odd looking golden stuff I just thought, what the hell is this? I ventured a taste and it exploded on my tongue!!! Rich, gnammy, creamy, even sweet flavours… ”This is not cheese Caterina… this is something else!” Here we are today sharing it with you – what an incredible life and thank you Caterina.

The Client is King
We went to Emilia-Romagna for our honeymoon, and knew we wanted to do a food tour to experience hands-on some of the wonderful products made in the region. I emailed a handful of food tour companies, but Nick responded the most promptly and gave us a much more reasonable price quote than many of the other tours. He was incredibly flexible and worked with us on the dates, even though we were visiting during the holiday month of August.
