Guided tours of San Daniele Ham – A Marvel of Udine Gastronomic Tradition
Festival – Feiern wie die Italiener. written by gregor July 11, Prosciutto di San Daniele – Aria di Festa – ein Fest wie kein anderes. Jedes Jahr im Juni.2017 san francesco di sales palermo
Arianna is the kind of person you dream of meeting while traveling; friendly, helpful, and patient. Our paths crossed on a recent trip through the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy. So, I arranged a behind-the-scenes tour of the Arbea Prosciutto factory, located just outside the town of San Daniele del Friuli, where Arianna served as my host. After my tour, we spoke over an espresso in the center of town. Hey, Arianna, thanks for taking the time to chat today. Hah, no. I moved here after college, looking for work, independence, and liberty.
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to arrange a visit to one of San Daniele's ham factories without booking with an established agency in Italy? I have searched the net but doesn't seem to be much info. As these are companies where staff is working, I think it is impossible to get in without an established agency that specifically forms the groups. If any person wants to do this independently, the company should have a staff always available to accompany visitors. And that today is a cost that few companies can afford. During "Aria di Festa", in June, various factories are open to visitors, the rest of the year you have to contact the companies first and they require a minimum number of people. In the village of Sauris, in the beautiful Carnia, you can visit the local ham factory every Tuesday and Thursday.
Searching Availability San Daniele is a medieval town located in the morainic hills of Friuli, northern-east of Italy. This place in the province of Udine is famous worldwide for its tasty ham called Prosciutto di San Daniele. So, what is so unique of this ham? How is it made and how different it is from the other famous Parma ham made in Emilia Romagna Region?
For my recipe, visit Flavors-of-Friuli. I took the bus from Udine and luckily had the foresight to get off while still in the outskirts of San Daniele, before the bus headed up the hill into the old section of town. Otherwise, it would have been a long walk back down. At first, I was quite disoriented. I had no idea where I was in relation to the address I was looking for, but after walking up and down the street a few blocks, I got my bearings. About five minutes later, I arrived at Prosciuttificio Prolongo. I was greeted by siblings Alessio and Arianna, whose grandfather started the business.
