The Imperial Soup (Zuppa Imperiale) is a typical Bolognese soup: fluffy semolina dough is baked, then reduced into small dices, and finally cooked with a fragrant meat stock. This recipe is a traditional, kid-friendly, option for family gatherings! The preparation of the Imperial Soup is fast and easy. It’s possible to bake and dice this tasty dough in advance, and quickly boil it into meat or vegetable broth just before serving!
The Ragù alla Bolognese is one of the most important recipes of my own city, perhaps the most famous Italian dish in the world. Unfortunately, it is also the most mangling Italian recipe! For the Bologna’s people, ragù is a very serious matter, more than can be expected! The preparation of this great recipe is very easy but needs time, right ingredients and a very good thick-bottomed heavy pot. So, take your time and be prepared to taste something different than the ordinary international “Bolognese sauce”.
