Lombard Region Cooking

The Lombardy region of Italy is in the north and contains Milan, Largo Guarda and Largo Como. It contains the most people and has a diverse cooking style. Some of the foods known in this region are:

  1. Veal
  2. Risotto
  3. Polenta
  4. Cow’s milk cheeses
  5. White Truffles

Most American’s think of this area as heavy creamy sauces but those are for the tourists. Milano has great pizzas, meat dishes, vegetables and cheeses. During the end of the year is truffle season and you can get fantastic pasta or veal with white truffles. These are expensive but worth a try. Milan is often overlooked as a tourist destination but I think it’s a great city. It is the fashion capital f the world. It has well dressed people and fashion is everywhere. Sit and try a pizza or a pasta. Visit the Duomo (cathedral), Galleria, and Opera House. Become a Milanese and enjoy life with a glass of wine.

The north & south go Italy are very different cultures and people. Both have a lot to offer. Enjoy your visit.

Not much is written about Milan in tourist notes but I love this city. It is cosmopolitan, very classy and the people and food are top of the line. From it’s Duomo in the center, to the Galleria, to the La Scala the opera house, it is a city not to be missed. “I’m going to Milan” is a BLOG about Milan. Just look at the style in the photos on this BLOG. If you happen to be in Milan during white truffle season, have a pasta and truffle dish. It is expensive but worth it and very unique.
