Food and travel writer Irene S. Levine finds a class cooking in Bologna is the perfect kick-off to exploring Emilia Romagna’s Food Valley with friends.

Culinary tourists have fallen in love with the bounty of Emilia Romagna, the region in northern Italy that is home to the holy trinity of prosciutto ham from Parma, traditional balsamic vinegar from Modena, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
