Italy, Rimini Guide (B): Gourmet Eating in the Rimini Area

Tourists with a taste for gourmet Italian food have always flocked to Emilia-Romagna, particularly to Bologna, with its signature meat sauce and cured meats, and Parma, famed for its ham and cheese. However, the Rimini area, in the south of Emilia-Romagna, has its own distinctive foods which will satisfy the most discerning palate.

Wherever you go you will find piadine. These are the flat circles of bread made from flour, water and lard that accompany every meal. They also appear in breakfast buffets and as part of a mixed starter, often rolled around a filling and sliced (a bit like a swiss roll). There are many specialist cafés (piadinerie) which serve piadine folded into four and wrapped around a variety of fillings (one café in nearby San Marino advertises 42 different fillings!).

Fossa is traditionally linked with the mediaeval village of Talamello where the ditches are opened each year in November, but it is now also produced elsewhere in the region.
