My parents are going to the above regions this week and next and have asked me to please post this request for them. They're very devoted to regional cooking and, despite the fact that they just haven't quite gotten into this whole message board thing, they're devout chowhounders in their own right. They're willing to seek out the best, so please let me know of your suggestions: hole-in-the-wall to elegant and anything in between, as well as terrific outdoor markets. They're staying in Todi for a week and then going on to Emilia Romagna, though they're staying a few different hotels in the area and I'm afraid I'm not sure of the specific locations. They've been to many different parts of Italy but never to Umbria or Emilia Romagna and are eager to try the delicacies of these areas.
I don't think they want to break the bank, here, so no need to send ideas on anything more than $50-60pp, including wine. Any suggestions of favorite bakeries are very welcome as well.
