While traveling in Italy with friends we spent a delightful 2 days in Bologna with Ilaria, first cooking traditional Bolognese sauce with tagliatelle, meatballs (ground beef, pork and mortadella!) with peas, and learning the art of making pasta with the long rolling pin. The next day was spent touring the countryside with behind the scenes stops to learn about and taste Parmesan, prosciutto and balsamic. Ilaria made it a fun, informative and unique experience with her easy manner and obvious love and knowledge of the Bolognese culture. Definitely a 5 star experience!
