Listen: Emilia-Romagna; Part 1

This week we're celebrating the 10th anniversary of The Splendid TableĀ® with the first of two shows recorded in Lynne's beloved Emilia-Romagna. This is the region of Italy that Italians consider their culinary jewel, the land of prosciutto and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Lynne takes us behind the scenes as no one else can - into balsamic attics and kitchens of legendary country restaurants. She takes us to a town where people still set a place at table for the composer Verdi and his music spills out into the street.

Lynne's Go-To Guide to Emilia-Romagna takes us from a salumeria in Parma to a barrista in Bologna, stopping along the way for a pasta class and a visit with an eel fisherman. A Rustic Celebration Supper from the Hills of Parma and Piacenza features a menu and recipes for a casual celebration supper selected by Lynne.

Join us for this very special broadcast of intimate armchair travel with one of Italy's greatest fans, Lynne Rossetto Kasper.
