Don your eating pants (you know, the stretchy ones) and get ready to dine like a true Milanese.

In a personalized experience with a local Milan host, a local with a passion for food, you will eat and drink your way through colorful Milan, gaining a feel for the flavors of Italy and its rich heritage.

From risotto alla Milanese, cotaletta (breaded veal cutlet) and ossobuco (a dish of melt-in the mouth braised veal shank), you’ll soon see that eating like the Milanese means eating hyper-local, and with passion.

Stop for a quick espresso at a classic standing bar (milky coffees after lunch are a no-no), then on to the next dish! Try polenta, a Northern Italian comfort food to die for when it’s cooked right (which it always is in Milan), nibble on some creamy Gorgonzola cheese in a deli and finish with a slice of panettone - you might think this fruity bread is only for Christmas, but it was born in Milan and enjoyed all year round here.

And of course, you couldn't do a food experience without ending with a true Italian gelato!

This is going to be the food crawl of your dreams - please just arrive hungry!
