At Casa Artusi in Emilia Romagna, Food is Culture

There might be at least 50 places on my must visit list already so I felt a bit guilty exploring a few of the many things that Emilia Romagna has to offer.

There is wine, history, music and food of course.

Unfortunately, details for a number of events were in Italian only.

I would have liked to read more about 'Alla scoperta del tempo perduto' (In search of lost time) from Musei da gustare in Modena (April 16-18)...


I was saved from language barriers when discovering Casa Artusi which Alberto Capatti describes with these words:

"....the first living cookery museum, visited at night by the spirit of Pellegrino and during the day open to cooks, amateurs, gastronomes, food lovers, children and everyone who for no special reason still loves to wear an apron, sit at the table and enjoy it as much as possible. It is not only a home of memories and fame but also the home of appetite."

Besides exploring the culture of food, you can taste local wines, cheese and other culinary treats at the Osteria of Casa Artusi. Many will be surely delighted to know that the Osteria is opened from 7:30 PM to 2:00 AM. It is closed on Tuesdays.


Casa Artusi is located in the Centre of Forlimpopoli on Via Emilia in complex of the Chiesa dei Servi.

I have not kept up with this new A Bistro A Day feature in past few days. To make up for it a bit, I decided to serve you 2 Tartines in this edition. We're not talking bread slices here. The tartines in question are 2 bistros using the same Tartine Bistro moniker. First to appear on my radar was Bistrot Tartine in Monaco. Weather permitting you can choose to eat in the dining room...
