Vic visits the quaint town of Cremona outside of Milan, home of the famed Stradivarius and Guarneri violins and violas - and helps make another artisan masterpiece, a 500 lb. Auricchio provolone. In the shadow of Italy's tallest brick bell tower, Vic speaks with the mayor in Cremona's historic piazza and learns about the town's centuries-old traditions of music and food. Recipes include Pasta Napkins with provolone and zucchini fonduta.
