    Modena, Italy Aged Before Beauty

    Modena and its environs make some of Italy’s finest foods – good enough for local son, Pavarotti, to sing about. Marc Millon finds they taste even better fresh from the source

  • Beyond the Sea

    Sardinia Beyond the Sea

    Century-old traditions are a core element of life in the beautiful, mountainous Nuoro region of Sardinia – and food is at its heart, as the wholesome, distinctive flavours of the local cuisine reflect the rugged, herb-scented terrain. Andrew Richardson gets a taste of the pastoral life.
