Poviglio is a charming village in the province of Reggio Emilia, full of stories and old traditions which are also entrenched in the memory of recipes passed down from generation to generation, dishes of Reggio Emilia's fine cuisine, authentic, natural and deeply rooted. Using their imagination and skill, past generations of women were able to work with simple ingredients turning typical dishes into small works of art, such as cappelletti, scarpazzone or grape sauce.
Vigorous and robust, the Reggio Emilia tradition is represented by our Cesarina, Claudia. She comes from a family of bakers. Claudia's parents managed a bakery on the outskirts of Reggio Emilia. "Therefore, - recounts our Cesarina - not only the bakery, but our home on the top floor and the courtyard, were filled by a waft of aromas and scents that emanated during cooking of desserts prepared by housewives and taken to the oven to cook." Within this context, Claudia had the opportunity to learn and perfect the old family recipes.
