mortadella If you're a foodie, the Emilia-Romagna area of Italy is mecca. From this area come such foods as Paremsan cheese, Parma ham, balsamic vinegar and mortadella, just to name a few. For those of you who don't know, mortadella is how we spell bologna here in Italy. Well, maybe that's not quite fair; mortadella is what the perfect bologna should taste like. Italians like to slice it paper thin and fold it over itself for the perfect pannini. Recently the IperCoop near us had this Guinness record holder on display. Next time you visit Italy be sure to try mortadella - you'll be spelling bologna m-o-r-t-a-d-e-l-l-a too!

I grew up in the North Beach area of San Francisco....I've had some awesome mortadella! I live in Florida now....haven't had good mortadella in about 11 years! It's so sad. I love this picture and I love mortadella!!1
