How does one recognize a genuine balsamic vinegar? What are the marks of quality that help to distinguish genuine products from imitations?

About the Author

Claudia Piras studied philosophy and literature. Her interest in Italian cuisine developed at a tender age. She will never forget the incomparable tomato sauce prepared by her Sardinian father, nor the mussels with lemon and charcoal-broiled fillet of veal at her grandmother’s house in Oristano. She works in Munich as an editor, author, and translator.
