Our Bologna food tour will escort you in the discovery of Bologna and its history through the classical dishes of Emilia-Romagna traditions. We will begin with a rich appetizer composed by local cured meats and warm, hand-baked bread. Then we will have classic tortellini or tagliatelle, impossible to miss when in Bologna. A typical fried meat with cream, parmesan cheese and smoked ham.

Bolognese cotoletta veal meat served with a rich sauce made with cream and parmesan cheese, and topped with smoked ham. The traditional recipe requires that the meat is fried, then sunk in meat broth. This is the trick which makes it so incredibly soft. Finally, it is briefly baked in the oven and served covered in melted cheese and ham.
Brazadela a traditional cake prepared in a doughnut-shape. A very old preparation coming from peasants’ cuisine. Since its origins, the recipe has been passed from mothers to their kinds, in order to preserve its simplicity and tastiness, for a delicate and unique taste.
