Emilia has been based at the famous London Borough Market for over 6 years! Their shop – Bianca e Mora specialises in food from Northern Italy, in particular the region of Emilia Romagna, the heart of gastronomic Italy.
Their range can broadly be split into three types; cheese, charcuterie and balsamic vinegar. Emilia’s speciality is Parmesan, and it not only stocks multiple ages, but also the hyper rare brown and red cow varieties. The charcuterie comes from the very smallest producers, with a particular emphasis on Slow Food Ark of Taste and Slow Food Presidia.
In short it is a shop run by people who believe that food should be available for all, a shop that is run to the values of Slow Food – good, clean and fair. It is therefore no surprise that Bianca e Mora have won best cheese, best deli/grocer and best individual product (red cow Parmesan) at the Slow Food Awards for the last three years..
