Bologna-Home Cooking

The Association for the Guardianship and Exploitation of the Traditional Culinary-Gastronomic Heritage of Italy and the Home Food project sponsored by the Ministry of Agricultural Politics, in collaboration with the University of Bologna, emphasizes and spreads the culture of traditional food interwoven with the culture of typical products in particular areas. In this spirit it is possible to become a guest of Italian families and to taste foods cooked by the lady of the house, affectionately called the Cesarine in praise of all the grandmothers, caretakers, aunts, that have enriched the home kitchen. We spent a lovely afternoon with Cersarine Luisa, and her mother. We learned to make homemade pasta, tortelloni filled with spinach and ricotta, tagliatelle with bolognese sauce and a delicious chocolate dessert that we enjoyed with a walnut liquor that Luisa’s uncle made.

In the spirit of home cooking, we had dinner at Trattoria Serghei. A family run traditional restaurant offering no menu but specialties from the Emilia-Romagna region created by the matriarch of the family and served by the men in the house. It was delicious and cosy.
