A Mamma Mia day!

Monday, November 6, 2017

We were picked up early in the morning by our amazing tour guides, Andrea and Massimo who guided us through the beatiful country side around Bologna with a great sense of humour. We were in a group of 19 people from UK, Germany, Canada, USA, Sweden and Australia. This very joyful experience was finalised with a six course gourmet lunch at a very nice restaurant at the beautiful country side. Our expectations with this tour were exceeded and I can highly recommend it to anyone who would like a happy day all about food in a warm and friendly environment! All together, a Mama Mia day!

There are unique elements, colours and smells, which characterize this season: the warm brown of the fields, the red of the tree leaves and pomegranate, the orange of the persimmons, the particular sunset pink light, the morning white haze, and the sense of wait.

This is the time of the roasted chestnuts, the new wine, sweet polenta, Porcini mushrooms, truffle and pumpkin tortelli!
