Last fall, I spent quite a bit of time in Emilia Romagna, the world’s food capital and home to Parmigiano Reggiano. While we were there, we visited the 4 Madonne Parmesan factory. I asked the tour guide if she ever grew tired of eating Parmesan, and she replied, “that would be impossible”! In fact, she eats it and cooks with it every day. One of her favorite comforts food is this simple potato puree’. She admitted she always makes extra to make Crochette di Patate, potato croquettes. Have a beautiful glass of Capitoni’s Orcia Riserva to complement this yummy dish.
