The food market in Bologna

If you are not interested in photos of food, switch off now.  I love the food in Italy.  The produce is amazing in range and quality.  I would love to take an apartment in Bologna to take advantage of the markets and buy food to take home to cook.

There are interesting people here as well.  We had excellent service at Tamburini, one of Bologna’s famous deli’s.

You will often hear “Si mangia bene in Bologna”  You eat well in Bologna – how true!
