Bologna is a city I’m totally in love with. Sono innamorata di Bologna!
I lived there the first 3 years of my life and my Mum always giggles when she reminds me of how I grew up eating tortelli (that’s how they call ravioli in Bologna) and tortellini every day, and that she and the nanny used to have to feed me together because I was too fast for just one person with a tortellino on her fork. In fact, I would loudly protest if another one wasn’t there for me already, PRONTO! I can easily say I haven’t changed much since then. 😀
My love for this wonderful city isn’t just due to the AMAZING food it offers. I just realised how many people have no idea of how beautiful she is (yes, Bologna is a Lady!). A few days ago somebody told me he thought Bologna was just an industrial city, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Bologna is a true jewel with her rich architectural treasures, from beautiful Medieval buildings to ancient palaces and towers, breathtaking churches, plus museums, art collections, quiet and luscious parks and a lot more. And the Bolognesi are laid back, kind and humorous.
Definitely worth a visit!
And then, there’s her food! If you love food like I do, then Bologna is paradise.
The little markets, the fresh pasta shops where you can see busy sfogline – the fantastic pasta ladies typical of Bologna – make their tagliatelle and tortellini faster than light, the ancient botteghe where they sell beautifully aged Parmigiano and incredibly tasty salumi (cured meats) plus the newest Eataly – the biggest one in the world with its 100.000 square meters and 48 restaurants! – all make of Bologna a dream destination for foodies.
That’s why Style in Travel had the brilliant idea of organizing a culinary holiday in this amazing city with/for me!
Join me in the discovery of foodie paradise Bologna!
We have a direct KLM flight from Amsterdam and we spend 4 fabulous days together in a lovely boutique hotel. We have organized two cooking lessons: the first one with real sfogline to learn how to make pasta the original Bolognese way and the second one with just me as a teacher in one of the BEAUTIFUL kitchens at FICO Eataly where we prepare typical dishes from Emilia Romagna and her capital, Bologna. Moreover, this trip includes 4 great excursions: an organic Parmesan cheese maker, a real – the expensive stuff! – aceto balsamico tradizionale producer, Fico Eataly and a tour of Bologna given by the lovely ladies of The Andiamo World who helped us put together this amazing program. You can see my photos of this beautiful long weekend in Bologna in the video!
So what are you waiting for?
Join me for an unforgettable time in one of Italy’s most charming – and yet almost undiscovered – cities!
