This Taste Experience begins with delicious pork ‘cups’, a typical Roman starter made with cured pork and porchetta ham, with salsa verde and raw vegetables from Chiara’s garden.

For the first course, Chiara serves gnocchi ‘alla romana’, in a butter and pecorino cheese sauce, cooked in the oven in a terracotta dish to give them a delicious crispy top. Next, we have delicious tripe in sauce in the roman style. Beef offal is cooked slowly in a mix of herbs and spices, tomato passata, mint leaves and a dusting of Pecorino cheese. On the side, we have ‘tordi matti’, rolls of horse meat filled with the fat trimmed from cured ham, garlic and parsley. We also have fresh courgettes with mint leaves.

We round off with a chocolate and rum dessert, which is served with wine donuts.

Our customers says

"This was one our best experiences in Bologna. Our hosts, Gianni and Lorenza, were a well travelled and interesting couple about similar ages to ourselves. They also spoke perfect English, having lived in Canada for many years. Gianni taught us how to make tortellini from scratch which we ate with our meal. Gianni is a fine and the rest of the meal was excellent. Their place is an apartment in a medieval Palazzo which was well worth seeing on its own. We really enjoyed it."

"Our dinner with Angela was the best experience of our visit to Rome. The food was delicious, and it was delightful to talk with Angela and her Mother about food, life in Rome, work, and the state of the world in general. This experience would have been impossible for us without Le Cesarine."

"We had a wonderfull lunch time with Tania (30 minutes outside from Bologna). She was an excellent host and very charming. We enjoyed her traditional courses (antipasti,strozzapretti con salsiccia, brasato al limone) very much and could highly recommend her. The atmosphere was very relaxed and it was easy to drive to her. We would come again."
