Giuseppe Verdi in Paris
Whenever Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi traveled to Paris to produce an opera, he took a train carload (literally) of food from Parma so that he could enjoy prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and other things from his homeland. The cooking in his Parisian household was therefore a blending of French and Parmigiani cookery.
