One perspectives we can have of Bologna is from above, enjoying the view from the city’s towers and monuments, from its hills and terraces of various local places, and from the enchanting terrace in the home of our Cesarina, Elena. From here, we can admire the classic Bolognese rooftops that are tinged to an even more intense red come sunset.
Here, we can experience the authentic flavor of Bologna, observing it from above and savoring its delectable cuisine.
As we know, Bologna is very famous for its gastronomy. This important notoriety dates back to the Middle Ages, when the city began to welcome students and professors from all over the world to the University. This is how Bolognese cuisine became rich, abundant and very varied, not unlike Elena’s cooking. Elena’s elegant table offers up the classic aromas and flavors of the Bolognese tradition, from passatelli in brodo (fresh egg pasta in a meat broth) to 'polpettone' (meatloaf), from 'crescenta con mortadella' (flat bread with cured ham) to 'torta di risoì (sweet rice and almond cake), all following her mother’s recipes.
