The Food of Lodi
The local food of Lodi is made above all of cheeses, the most famous is Grana Padano DOP which in its best production is called Granone Lodigiano and is considered the “ancestor” of all grana cheeses. A curiosity: the Granone Lodigiano was once yellow, as saffron was added to the mix;
The raspadüra – A typical specialty coming from grana cheese is the raspadüra, a shaved cheese obtained by scraping the young grana cheese, cut in half with a special knife. It takes a particular skill for which some are considered true raspadüra “masters”. It is usually served as an appetizer or as a side dish to polenta, mushrooms…
The raspadüra is often present in village festivals throughout the province of Pavia.
Turtin – Another specialty of the Lodi area is the Turtìn, a typically autumn appetizer, prepared with fresh goose, duck or turkey blood, which is beaten to prevent coagulation. It is then mixed with butter, cream and milk creating a dough to which parmesan cheese, bread and grated amaretti are added, and then salt, pepper and nutmeg. It is cooked with pork fat and served hot.
