Keeping the teachings of Pelligrino Artusi (the first Italian cookery book author) close to her heart, Marica’s carefully selects typical, locally sourced products from Bologna's rich culinary heritage.
This Taste Experience begins with Parmigiano Reggiano Sformatini, little pies, a mouthwatering antipasto. It's up to the guest to decide how 'aged' they would like their Parmigiano cheese, as it greatly alters the intensity of the flavour.
As a first course, our Cesarina serves gramigna pasta with sausage: gramigna is a short, curly pasta shape with a hollow middle, typical of Emilia Romagna. It requires a sauce with a strong, rich flavor.
A great classic of Italian second courses comes next: Spezzatino con i piselli, veal stew with peas. Marica then tempts us with her parmigiano pie with savoury zabaione cream.
We finish the Taste Experience on a sweet note, with a typical Bolognese dessert of ancient tradition: la pinza bolognese, a strudel made with sweet pastry dough and filled with a quince and citrus-based sweet mustard.
