What I offer is a tour of the market(s) called “Mercato di Mezzo” (Market in the Middle) and “Mercato delle erbe” (Market of the Herbs), situated right in the centre of Bologna.
As we walk through some of the most picturesque areas we will guide you all about this city as we go along, we’ll buy the product we’ll need for our lesson. We’ll then go on to my home for the lesson, with recipes of both Bolognese and Italian traditional dishes. I live in the heart of the historic centre, so we’ll do this all on foot!
You’ll be the protagonist of the lesson. I’ll enable you to do all (or most) of the preparation and cooking and, where necessary, I’ll show you some cooking techniques and secrets. We’ll cook traditional Italian dishes. The lessons are ideal for food fans, and are suitable both for beginners and for expert cooks and professionals of the food sector.
These customized courses are for from 1 to 4 participants at most, (but it can be made as an exception up to 6 if you are relatives or friends traveling together).
Preparing handmade egg pasta!
The mean may be composed of dishes of Bologna or Emilia-Romagna – and if desired, preparing handmade egg pasta — or one from another region like Lombardy, Tuscany, Sicily, etc.; otherwise it can be a contemporary style Italian meal, whichever you prefer, but always made using the seasonal local produce.
You can choose from among these course combinations:
The price of the lesson includes a snack with an aperitif (usually white wine) and some snacks, to be enjoyed during the preparation of the dishes, and a bottle of good wine for every two guests to be drunk during the meal, which I will select for the proper combination with the dishes you prepare.
Also included is the cost of the ingredients, with the exception of fish, shellfish, porcini mushrooms, and truffles.
The menu is prepared a day or two before your lesson, taking into account your preferences and any food allergies or intolerance, and making sure it’s a well-balanced, delicious meal that you can put together within the time available.
