Matteo Edition

Ciao! Welcome to The Matteo edition from The Deli Society.

In this box we will be taking our you on a wonderful trip through Italy.

For our cheeses we are in the North of Italy. Our Piave Vecchio DOP is produced in northeastern Italy amongst the beautiful Dolomites.

A short trip west takes us to our next supplier in a small commune called Cravanzana, in the Piedmont region. We’ll learn more about these producers and their cheese below. 

We then journey south into the rolling hills of Tuscany, where we hear from our wine maker Michele Guarino from Tenuta Lenzini. 

Finally, we get all the way to the bottom of Italy in Calabria, to visit our charcuterie partners, producing some of the finest Calabrian salamis on the market.

This box is a real celebration of Italian food and drink from all corners of the country, which we know you’re going to love.

Location: Italy

On top of all the food and drink we’ll be consuming and learning about, we have also included a travel guide, which gives you all the tips you’ll need for a day in: Modena. The food capital of the world.  

We’d love to see your Italian set ups, so please tag us in on our socials.

Grazie,
Josh & Harry

Travel Guide

Modena is a city in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. It’s truly a clebration of Italian culture, Modena is known for its balsamic vinegar opera heritage, plus being the homes of Ferrari Lamborghini and Maserati sports cars.

Modena is home to restaurant Osteria Francescana, famous chef Massimo Bottura’s creation, which was voted the best restaurant in the world in 2016 and 2018.  

BB QuartoPiano. This little B&B is a home away from home, and is situated perfectly in the heart of Modena

It would be wrong of us to suggest anywhere other than this beautiful Bed and Breakfasts roof terrace. Fresh OJ pastry’s and a book to read whilst looking out with panoramic views of Modena is the perfect way to start the day.

Definitely take a stroll through the Piazza Grande, but as theyre famous for it, you have to go and see how Balsmaic Vinegar is made at Acetaia Guiseppe.

Menomoka for your caffeine hit. Do as the Italians do and order an espresso to sip quickly at the bar, or chill in their outside spot, under the canape, lazily watching the slow life of Modena

Hosteria Giusti. Hidden behind a deli, the lady working behind the counter, will lead you through the back into what looks like a somebody’s small dining room. Here you will have the most sensational, silky pasta of your life!

It wouldn’t be a trip to Modena without going to see the Ferrari factory. Go and see all that Enzo Ferrari has produced over the years, and how it has built an economy for Modena and Italy.

If by some miracle you’re able to get a table at Osteria Francescana then fill your boots!!!

If like the rest of us you didn’t plan 6 months in advance, then head to Antika Moka on the edge of town, for some fantastic classic Itlian dishes in an impressive dining hall.

Archer. A small little spot in a back alley with impressive cocktails that come with little snacks.
