The wine region of Lombardy is famous all over the world for its iconic capital city, Milan, fine sparkling wines and the delicious Risotta alla milanese. Italian cuisine is probably the most sought after cuisine in the entire world. From southern delights like Sicilian pizzas to northern Ossobuco, the mouth-watering cuisine of this country has resulted in it earning an incredible number of Michelin star and fine dining restaurants.

The cuisine of Lombardy is different from the popularized southern Italian cuisine. The people of Lombardy rely heavily on rice instead of the usual pasta. They use rice in meat and vegetable preparations, stews and even soups. They helped pioneer the famous Italian rice dish of risotto alla milanese. They love making one-pot meals loaded with flavours. They prefer to use butter as a base for their dishes instead of the popular olive oil. Also, cream plays an important part in their diets. The region also produces some famous Italian cheeses like Gorgonzola and Grana Padano.
