Cremona Local Products Guide
meats and cheeses characterize the Cremonese gastronomy
With the following Cremona local products guide, handling the flavors of the province will be a pleasure.
Cremona will certainly enthrall even the most discerning palate of those who wish to experience food and wine tourism in Lombardy.
This Region has a long-standing culinary tradition that brings joy to whoever tries it.
The Cremona countryside is particularly known for its bovine cattle, thus dairy products and cold meats are important for local production. We would like to recommend food items such as the Salami IGP, which is soft and slightly garlic-flavored, and the Cotechino Vaniglia.
Order a Gran Bollito Cremonese if you want to try an authentic traditional dish paired with a glass of fine wine. This recipe consists of various cuts of meat simmered in broth and served boiled vegetables and Mostarda. This delicacy is made out of candied fruit and mustard essence and is often associated with the holidays.
Its famous cheeses: Grana Padano, Provolone Valpadana and Salva Cremasco are all labelled as DOP.
Tourism in this part of Lombardy takes a sweeter turn with a slice of Torta Bertolina, a cake that can only be found in Cremona.
