You will taste some of the following specialities in our Bologna Food Tour (according to products availability):
Board with local cured meats and cheeses with hand-baked bread:: according to Bolognese
tradition, the meal opens with a wide variety of local cured meats and cheeses. They are served
along with warm bread, hand-baked by the wise hands of professional bakers.
Bolognese Tortellini:: fresh pasta, stuffed with different types of meat (pork, mortadella and
prosciutto) and parmesan cheese. They are a must-have on traditional Italian Christmas table but
served at any moment of the year: usually, they are served in meat broth, but our guests will have
the opportunity to choose among different options for garnishing their tortellini!
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: traditional cake prepared in a doughnut-shape, it is 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.
Espresso: it is the inevitable conclusion of every Italian proper meal. We offer it in a historical
coffee shop, accompanied with artisanal whipped cream.
Do Eat Better Experience tours are a mix of high-quality gastronomy as a way of showing Italian culture and lifestyle and a walking experience together with a local friend. This is the reason why we accept small groups only: we want to focus on a genuine exchange and give to each tourist the highest attention possible.
