Bologna: la grassa (fat), la dotta (erudite), la rossa (red)


Bologna: la grassa (fat), la dotta (erudite), la rossa (red)



“Not all those who wander are lost”, Tolkien used to say. Humans are explorers, wanderers by nature and we usually feel great when we discover new places.Travelling enables you to look at the world in a different way, it helps you to grow up. You might have got to your Erasmus destination without knowing anything about the new city or culture you’re about to dive into. But..we got you: listen, taste, smell, look up over and all around you. Sit down, take breaks, drink and eat and of course even get a little lost on purpose in the enchanting and welcoming city of Bologna or as the locals usually call it: the erudite, the fat and the red.

Task no. 2
Evidence verified by: self-approve
PREPARE your “cotoletta” First of all prepare the meat broth, it will complete the dish. Now prepare the slices of veal breast and beat them with a meat tenderizer to make them thinner. Prepare the flour, the eggs beaten with a pinch of salt and the breadcrumbs in 3 different containers. Pass the slices first in the flour on both sides and immediately after pass them in the eggs. Finally pass them in the breadcrumbs covering them completely and squeezing them well with your hands to make the breading adhere better. In a medium-large pan, put the butter, melt it and cook no more than two slices at a time. When the first side is golden brown, turn them over to continue cooking. Place a slice of raw ham on each slice and sprinkle with plenty of grated or flaky Parmesan. Now add a ladle of broth to each slice, cover the pan with a lid and cook for about 5 minutes. Once ready, place them on a serving plate and serve with your favorite side dish. Your cotoletta alla Bolognese is ready to be enjoyed hot.
