Siena, Padova, Verona, Lucca, Venice, Modena…the North of Italy is ripe with progressive cities each with their own typical dishes, histories and distinguished personalities. Although I have seen my fair share of Italy, the bulk of my travels placed me in less touristy Southern cities. The arrival of Chaney meant a short trip was in order, just North of Florence. So here we are folks…Bologna.
Bologna is a noticeably slow paced melting pot of Intellectualism, Old City Red Brick charm, Contemporary Art, Political activism, Queer Theory and a style of cooking all its own.
As always here is the visual snapshot to the city streets which provide the soundtrack to my culinary adventures.
