I spent Saturday with Jessica from Italy Travel Guide in and around Parma for the annual Prosciutto di Parma festival. Here’s a little taste of what we saw:

Will be visiting myself later this month, with a little Balsamico and Reggiano thrown in for good measure.
What a treat!
As much as I enjoy prosciutto, that pic kinda grosses me out. :-P

@Melanie – it’s funny, but I’m not that big on prosciutto but being in the factory definitely increased my appreciation for how it’s made.
Peter @ italyMONDO! says
Looks like you guys had fun! I’m looking forward to the next post :-D
Mmmm… I saw the Prosciutto di Parma festival on tv over the weekend and it looked like a tasty event. Made me wish Amalfi wasn’t so far from Parma! (Or maybe that’s a good thing…) Look forward to hearing about your day!

Oh how I love prosciutto! Can’t wait to see the rest.
Bellini Valli says
Look at all of that in one place:D
The Italian Dish says
Spectacular! Makes my mouth water.
Jessica, WhyGo Italy says
Oh, lookee, it’s the House of Ham! I think I may have to redecorate my house to look like that. I’m sure some of the more devout members of my Jewish family would just *love* that. Heh…
Mmm. I’ve been having this on-going debate with friends on how long prosciutto holds… especially without refrigeration. I want to take loads of it back with me to America. Any ideas on how long before it went bad? (Or does that just give you indigestion?)
Jennifer S says
This looks like FUN to me! I’d love to see this.

Look forwarded to reading more.
I wouldn’t try bringing any prosciutto back to the US with you — customs will confiscate it. At least they did when I declared ours in Chicago! A friend of ours (a wily Milanese) told me that my mistake was my honesty — if I’d tucked it well within my suitcase and fibbed, I’d have been all right. But his theory was proved wrong the next time he tried to smuggle some speck back into the States after a trip home — they swiped that too. My advice is to stick with cheese and limoncello ; )
Hi, I’m your giude into the factory. Very beautiful pics and very good text!! I’m proud you like the tour.
