My last night in Parma and around from the hotel was a highly recommended restaurant, La Greppia. Small quaint and smelling fantastic, my host and I were soon shown to our table.
Immaculately dressed Italian waiters attended to water bread and probably the most comprehensive and extensive wine list I have ever seen. Page after page after page of wines from around the world. Thankfully my host tackled the wine list and with a little persuasion from the waiters and ordered one of the finest wines from the Emilia Romagna region !
We again opted for a selection of cured meats to start. Soft juicy cured parma ham like wedon’t get at home, sliced off the bone at the table by a skilful waiter and neatly presented with accompaniements and bread sticks. Next to follow was a curried capuccino of baccala. Baccala, a salted dried cod fish, gently poached in milk and finished in a curried potato soup. Atop was a sprinkling of cayenne pepper on the frothy foamy top.
Who cant go past lamb for the main course. Simply roasted, succulent lamb cutlets and a selection of local vegetables.
For sweets, the waiter brought round a magnificient cheese and dessert trolley. Baked chocolate something with another chocolate something. Absolutely delicious.
