Activities

Born from the desire to create a lively place to live, a place in where it’s possible to discover the history, the tradition, the art and the taste, the Cascina of Balsamico Bonini can offer an unique experience.
The will to share and discover the Balsamic Vinegar culture has led us to create activities created for groups of colleagues or special customers with the aim to improve the harmony and working relationships. The taste is certainly the main theme but with different points of view.

Traditional recipes with Cindy Swain
Cindy Swain is an American food blogger that in 2009 has moved in Emilia to make the most of her food&wine passion. Her Italicana Kitchen with Cindy Swain is a bilingual blog that mixes the Italian culture and the American’s one. The aim? Inspire people and let them try to cook. In addition to the courses dedicated to Italian people we thought to a format dedicated to foreign guests in which Cindy can teach them the traditional recipes by using the Balsamico Bonini.
