In Bologna, arrive hungry

Incredible architecture and art are splendid and interesting enough but when I go to Italy, I want to eat.

Which is why, after a dozen trips to the country, I decided to settle into the city of Bologna for a few weeks and consume as much as I possibly could.

Now, every Italian will tell you that their region makes the best food. But for many, the best Italian food comes from the region of Emilia-Romagna, of which Bologna is the capital. Meat ragu, tortellini, lasagna, parmigiano cheese, mortadella, coppa and balsamic vinegar - all have roots here and the resulting regional dishes are truly sublime.

Through dozens of meals at dozens of restaurants, I compiled this one-day dining guide to the culinary and sensory overload that is Emilia-Romagna. The only two requirements? Bring extra cash and arrive hungry. Really hungry.

    Mmmm, lasagna. I have a good recipe for that, I swear the pan weighs 5 lbs when it's all together. It's always a hit!

      Lol! When my kids were younger, they wouldn't touch bologna with a 10 ft pole. (Yet they would eat hot dogs) I told them that it was just a hot dog rolled out to be eaten cold & on bread...yeah it worked, still eat it to this day. Had to share. :)
