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.

What you can expect The Do Eat Better Experience food tour is a walking tour around the historical center of Bologna. The tourist is guided by a "Foodie", a local "buddy" able to explain every detail of the selected restaurants, their preparations, and the relevant history/curiosities.

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.
