These series of tasting menus from Divino Enoteca celebrate the best of local and fine-dining cuisine from across Italy's most well-known destinations, and this month its the turn of Emilia-Romagna.

This region stretches from the wetlands of the Po Delta down to the beach resorts of the Adriatic coast, and across fertile plains where the signature ingredients of Italian cuisine are produced.

It is the ultimate foodie destination famed for artisan producers of prosciutto crudo and Mortadella di Bologna, intense balsamic vinegar and Italy’s most famous cheese, Parmesan.

Diners can look forward to tucking into dishes such as: Gnocco fritto e culatello - classic golden pilloww= of deep fried dough served with Culatello ham and Stracciatella cream cheese.

This is followed by tagiatelle al ragu - fresh egg pasta with bolognese ragù served with grated Parmesan cheese.

For the main course guests will enjoy faraona alla romagnola - marinated guinea fowl with shallot, wine and garlic served with Parmesan polenta and sauté of cabbage finished with guinea fowl jus.

The region’s menu ends on a sweet note with mascarpone mousse and savoiardi - whipped mascarpone with an egg sabayon served with grated dark chocolate and Savoiardi biscuits.

Divino Enoteca Head Chef, Francesco Ascrizzi, said: "The enchanting region of Emilia-Romagna remains Italy's food capital. The region is home to an impressive array of world-class meats, cheeses, oils - all made with strict standards dating back generations.

"As the second of twenty regions that we will showcase here at Divino Enoteca, I am excited to bring new flavours, produce and techniques to the restaurant that will introduce exquisite new Italian food experiences for our guests."

The four-course Emilia-Romagna regional menu is priced at £39 per person with the option to enjoy an expertly selected Emilia-Romagna wine pairing for an additional £26.
