Parmesan vs. Parmigiano Reggiano

That is, American Parmesan has been ruined for me forever. That is because Parmigiano Reggiano in Italy is something entirely different than American Parmesan cheese.

Bergamo to Venice: Our Guide and Day in Venice

Venice… ah Venice… the city of love, canals, and funny smells. Venice was nice. It is definitely a place everyone should see. We’re glad we went, and we enjoyed the time there. But to be honest, Venice and the Venetian experience felt a bit hyped and overrated at times. We’re in Venice during a relatively low time of the year for tourism. However, Venice is still overrun with people taking pictures of things.
