Bologna is a beautiful and historic city in Northern Italy that’s home to remarkable architecture, world-class art, and impressive cultural institutions. It’s also the place where the famous and delicious Bolognese sauce originated.
The original Bolognese sauce recipe dates back to the mid nineteenth century and is attributed to a man named Pellegrino Artusi who wrote a cookbook called “The Science of Cooking and the Art of Fine Dining”. Artusi’s original recipe consisted of veal filet, pancetta, butter, onion, and carrot cooked with broth, but the recipe has evolved to include different variations of meat and vegetables throughout the years.
