The rich and flavorful foods on Northern Italy have their roots in the area and many famous local ingredients originated in Emilia-Romagna. Parma's proscuitto ham, Parmegiano-Reggiano cheese, Modela's balsamic vinegar and Bologna's mortadella have appeal that have justly made them world-renowned. On the streets of the region, food stands sell piadina, a flatbread, and squacquerone, a soft cheese, as a snack. Many of the region's pasta's are egg based. Tortelini and Lasagna have their roots in the area. World-famous meat sauce, Bolognese, is served over various pastas, has more meat than tomato and is known locally as Ragu. Grilled and sauteed greens, such as radicchio are a popular side dish. The most popular of desserts included zuppe inglese (custard with sponge cake and a spicy liqueur called Alchermesslia) and semi-freddo (a light ice cream).

A large portion of the wines produced in Emilia-Romanga are easy to drink table wines. However, the region is well-known for sparkling wines called spumante and frizzante.
