Balsamic vinegar's complex flavors are used to enhance dishes and should be used sparingly.  It can be used in salad dressings, marinades, and sauces
where it imparts a distinct but subtle flavor.  Balsamic vinegar can also be added to steaks, fish, chicken, pasta or risotto.  In Emilia-Romagna, traditional
balsamic vinegar is often served drizzled on top of chunks of Parmigiano Reggiano and mortadella in an antipasto.  As a dessert, it may be served over fresh
fruit such as strawberries and pears or a simple gelato.
