Polesine Parmense, Italy

 

At the beautiful Antica Corte Pallavicina Relais in Italy, host Pete Evans meets the master of culatello, Massimo Spigaroli, and Parma’s popular third-generation chef, Marco Parizzi. Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking takes you to Massimo’s mesmerizing culatello cellar, a place where his prized salumi lines the ceiling and walls. And then pluck the freshest of produce with Marco on the grounds of the gorgeous estate that’s been a part of the Spigaroli family for generations. The feast is served on the grounds perched on the edge of The Po River and surrounded by a curious peacock, roaming hens, and stunning white cows. On the menu are stuffed squash blossoms, millefoglie of quinoa, gnocchi with blue goat cheese, rabbit and culatello powder, and roasted Guinea hen.
