A Lunch Break in Modena, Italy

Fennel, squashes, eggplant and onions fresh off the grill waiting to get dressed in syrupy, aged, local balsamic vinegar
On our recent road trip through the north of Italy, we stopped in Modena for lunch. A city responsible for the creation of balsamic vinegar, Modena was a sure to be a sweet pit stop. We set out on a walk and discovered a mellow little piazza called Piazza Giacomo Matteotti. The trees lured us in and we soon spotted a sunny terrace full of tables tucked away beyond the trees. It was Officina Della Senape, a restaurant with wood grill and lots of locals having a relaxed weekend lunch. It was meant to be... and turned out to be one of our favorite meals of the trip.

Gramigna with a ragu of sausage and porcini mushrooms
Fettucini with bolognese .... so nice to have a real bolognese in the Emilia-Romagna region, so close to the city of Bologna!
