Bologna is the best city in Italy for food and has the least number of tourists. With its medieval beauty, it has it all.Mario Batali
Finishing food is about the tiny touches. In the last seconds you can change everything.Mario Batali
As they say in Italy, Italians were eating with a knife and fork when the French were still eating each other. The Medici family had to bring their Tuscan cooks up there so they could make something edible.Mario Batali
