Missing Italia

April 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

Just a side note. Currently very much missing Italy, its people, and the foodgasmic cucina italiana it offers. This was a view from the roof of our appartamento, where the FoodgasmTV crew lived last year! And below, the exterior of an indoor market. Oh, Italia.

Tortellini al Ragù.

Nonna Assunta, 77 years old, is settled at her pasta table every morning by 8am. She cracks 25 fresh eggs. Crack. Crack. Crack. And swirls them into a pile of fluffy flour. She rolls it, shapes it, styles it. And then, a few hours later, I’m sitting at her table, now covered in a crisp white cloth, and her daughter, Manuella, hands me a warm plate of Nonna Assunta’s artful labor. Ricotta-filled tortellini in a perfectly balanced ragù.

I’m in Bologna, after all – home of the world-famous Bolognese sauce, what the locals call ragù. You think you’ve tried it? Well think again. You haven’t had the real deal until you have it here.

Where Am I?
