Riviera Romagnola, Emilia Romagna
In our trip to discover the Italian gastronomic traditions, it’s impossible not to stop along the Riviera Romagnola, between Rimini and Riccione, Cervia and Milano Marittima, famous seaside resorts for their nightclubs and movida, as well as family-friendly places to stay.
Among the first courses are fresh pasta specialities such as tagliatelle and strozzapreti. Cured meats as prosciutto crudo and coppa, along with fresh cheeses as stracchino and Squacquerone, make the perfect summer second course. Last but not least, fish from the nearby Adriatic sea gets roasted on the grill. Another must is street food, with piadina and crescione stuffed with herbs.
To taste excellent fish in an innovative version but without going against tradition, try the i-Fame restaurant at i-Suite Hotel. Here saffron tagliolini get together with kombu seaweed, ricotta cheese marries mullet Bottarga, the Scquaquerone becomes a dessert. Tasting is believing.
