One-day Bologna Food Market Visit And Hands-on Italian Cooking Class At Local Family Home.
No trip to Italy is complete without learning how to take the tastes of this country back home with you to create in your own kitchen!
This one-day shopping and cooking program begins in the morning as we meet in the city center to visit the central food market. Here we will sample tastings of local products as we shop for the food to be used later that day during our cooking class. We will talk about the traditions of the regional foods we purchase like Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Mortadella di Bologna, balsamic vinegar of Modena, and more.
In the afternoon, we will meet again at a local family home to begin our cooking class (presented in English) based on a traditional menu of the Emilia Romagna region. Here you will learn how to prepare a variety of regional dishes, including hand-made egg pasta rolled out from scratch.
Following our work in the kitchen, we will enjoy a wine aperitif along with some delicious regional foods, and dinner will follow with the cuisine we have prepared together.
Available all year round (upon request) except on Sundays and other holidays.
