Take a walk with an English-speaking tour leader from the University to a typical restaurant located a few minutes away. Bologna is known for its rich gastronomy and culinary traditions. The city is often referred to as “La Grassa” (the fat one) due to its emphasis on hearty, flavourful dishes. One of the most famous dishes from Bologna is the classic ragù alla bolognese, which is a meat-based sauce traditionally served with tagliatelle pasta. Another popular dish is tortellini, which are small, stuffed pasta pockets typically filled with a mixture of meats and cheese. In addition to pasta dishes, Bologna is also known for its cured meats, such as prosciutto di Parma and mortadella. These meats are often served as antipasti (appetizers) or used as ingredients in pasta dishes. Bologna is also famous for its cheeses, such as Parmigiano-Reggiano and Grana Padano, which are often grated over pasta dishes or served on their own as a snack. Finally, Bologna is known for its sweet treats, such as torta di riso (rice cake) and zuppa inglese (an Italian version of trifle). These desserts are often accompanied by a glass of sweet wine, such as vin santo. Overall, Bologna’s gastronomy is characterized by its rich flavors and emphasis on hearty, satisfying dishes made with high-quality ingredients and have adapted to cater to plant-based eaters. Vegan Bolognese cuisine typically relies on fresh vegetables, legumes and grains as the base of their dishes. For example, the classic Bolognese ragù can be made with a mix of lentils, carrots, celery, onions and tomato paste instead of meat. In addition, there are many delicious pasta dishes that can be made vegan by using vegetable-based sauces, such as a creamy tomato sauce made with cashews, or a pesto sauce made with basil, pine nuts and nutritional yeast. Overall, Bolognese cuisine has a rich history and offers a variety of options for vegan eaters who are looking to experience the flavours of this region.
