Italian Days are a series of one day wine tours and Italian food tours in Bologna. They are the brainchild of Alessandro Martini who is based just outside the city in the small town of Savigno.
In the words of Alessandro 'a culinary expedition on the trace of taste and typical products of Emilia Romagna'.
But not just a very personal and personalized discovery of the gastronomy of the region, but cooking classes, wine tours and special guided tours to local events and traditional sagra and tour of a Parma ham or prosciutto.
Ask Alessandro for a visit to a traditional Italian wine cantina with a fantastic view of the Bologna hills. Here you will see first hand the full process of wine production followed by a full tasting accompanied with the best cheese and salami from the region, if not Italy.
And as Bologna is the capital of mortadella and fine salami you cannot return home without experiencing the location where both are made.
"Be a chef for a day" are also one day cooking classes in hills of Bologna in a professional kitchen. Learn how to make pasta by hand or 'pasta fatta a mano' such as tortellini and the typical tagliatelle.
