The local cuisine would impress with meat dishes, as meat in Lombardy is incredibly tasty and very hearty. The most recognizable among them are cazuela and ossobuco, meat stewed in wine with addition of various spices. Italian cuisine can’t be imagined without pasta. Lombardy is no exception; it offers a variety of interesting regional dishes. Locals prefer pasta with filling, tortellini and ravioli. Pasta can be stuffed with boiled vegetables and minced or soft cheese; every restaurant cooks pasta following interesting original recipes.
All the dishes are generously flavored with spices that allow emphasizing the taste of products. It is believed that gremolata was used for the first time in Lombardy; the former is a special kind of spice with a mixture of garlic, lemon zest and parsley. Lombardian wines are well known to connoisseurs of high-quality drinks from many countries. Pavese and Franciacorta are considered to be the most popular. Fans of short drinks would like Campari and Amaretto liquors, which are also produced in Lombardy.
