Meet Alessandro Martini – Mr. #DOP!

I am so excited about my upcoming trip and quest to Bologna, Italy this Saturday, June 9th!

Project Healthy in Italy is officially launching this day (read about it here) and I hope you come along with me for the journey both here on my blog and through my social media accounts. 🙂

*Follow Carina’s Healthy Kitchen and Project Healthy in Italy on Facebook here and Instagram  here

But, what I really am excited about today is the introduction of my main partner for my month long quest- Alessandro Martini or as I will be calling him, Mr. #DOP!

DOP  is short for Denominazione di Origine Protetta (“Protected Designation of Origin”) and is a very important classification that garantees that the (Italian) food is made by local farmers and artisans, using traditional methods. Alessandro is an expert on this, among many other things related to Italian food and wine.

The reason I first visited Bologna in the Emilia- Romanga district ,was due to the food culture, but the reason I came back was Alessandro and his family owned food & wine tour business, Italian Days.

I also knew that for my quest in Italy I would really love to have Alessandro aboard as he knows all there is to know  about Italian food culture. He is the perfect person to help me find the answers as to why Italy is the healthiest country in Europe and the world.

When I reached out to him about “Project Healthy in Italy” I was so happy that he wanted to be a part of the journey as my “partner in crime”, food expert and as a genuine, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, warm hearted Italian.

You can follow us during June 9- July 6 th and there will be some really exciting things to see and learn more about. Olive oil in Tuscany, organic wine production, truffle hunting, cooking with nonna are just some of the things coming up!

You can visit his website here and I garantee you will not regret booking a tour when you are in the area! Make sure to use my name when booking and I am sure he will take extra good care of you;)
