You only have a little time in Bologna?
Here are a few ideas of what you can do if all the time you have is just three hours.
1. Tagliatelle al Ragù
This very short – and very popular – new class gives you an opportunity to make egg pasta Tagliatelle from scratch and to learn the steps involved in making an authentic Bolognese sauce, and after to enjoy Bologna’s delicious signature pasta dish along with a good glass of wine. Offered at 10 am to 12.30 pm and 3.30 pm to 6pm, minimum 2 people up to a maximum of 6.
2. Kids Can Cook!
If you’re travelling with young kids aged 5 to 12, this parent and child cooking experience is for you. I have yet to meet a child who doesn’t enjoy cooking, even if it’s their very first time. If your kids are used to cooking and you have enough time, then probably one of the half day classes would be best.
3. Demo and Dine
If you’d like to taste home cooking in a local’s home but you’d rather watch than cook, sign up for this show cooking class, a demonstration class where you can participate a little if you wish. To use ingredients at their best, the menu available changes to follow the seasons. Vegetarian menus available.
4. Filled Pasta
You make your own egg pasta already but want to get comfortable with stuffed pasta? Learn to make traditional Bologna Tortelloni with the classic ricotta, parsley, Parmigiano and nutmeg filling, and also the pretty Fagottini shape where the filling you make will change according to the season.
5. Food Shop like a Local
If you’d like to take home a few food souvenirs but aren’t sure about where to shop and which shops you can trust, I can be your personal food shopping assistant. Or if you’re going to be living in Bologna for a few weeks, or months, or maybe longer, I can help guide and orient you regarding your food and wine shopping as a local resident.
Please send an email to check availability, and for current prices and additional information about the Bologna culinary experiences and cookery lessons available.
