Milan is a unique place with two souls: a very traditional, northern Italian one, and one that is bustling and innovative as you can find only in few European capitals. WalkingPalates has chosen only passionate and high-quality local producers, some of the best food venues that only locals know, in order to make you taste and experience the greates sample of what Milan has to offer.
Our food tour starts with a tasting of local Franciacorta sparkling wine in a hidden and unique venue, a little gem kept by wine lovers. We think that this is the perfect start to dive into the Milanese atmosphere. During our tour our licensed guide, the Food Ambassador, will introduce you to Milanese food, curiosities, hidden gems and lifestyle. One of the best known dishes you cant miss is Risotto alla milanese and you will taste it in one of the best local restaurants, combined with a second pasta dish and an excellent local white wine.
Milanese and Lombardy cuisine are also known for the cheeses, and thats why during our food tour you will visit a place that cant be found anywhere else in Italy! We are talking abour Resistenza Casearia (Diary Resistance), the only cheese shop in Italy selling cheeses only made with unpasteurized milk. These are just some of the stops that, walking you through a proper Italian meal of five courses, ends with a dessert tasting.
