The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Italian

Description: Emilia-Romagna is a horizontal swathe in the north of Italy, from the Adriatic right up to Piedmont, comprising the provinces of Bologna, Ferrara, Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Reggio nell'Emilia, Forlì and Ravenna. The fertile plains of Emilia around the River Po produce wheat, sugar beet, tomatoes, maize, rice and other crops. Food processing is the principal industry and this region produces probably the best regional dishes and foods in Italy. Emilia is also the home of Parma ham and prosciutto, Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar di Modena, not to mention coppa, mortadella and pancetta. Romagna is a tougher part of the world with wooded, rocky mountains, fertile plains and coastline and their food is mainly coarser, peasant food or fish.
