Book Now For Emilia Romagna Dinner – 9 October T: 02 9657 9129
Join us at Balla on next month’s culinary trip to Emilia Romagna. Enjoy a Emilia Romagna inspired menu with matching wines for $90pp, on Tuesday 9 October from 7pm.
Continuing our popular regional menu series, Balla is proud to present a menu from Emilia Romagna. Its capital city of Bologna is nicknamed “la grassa” in reference to the refined and abundant cuisine of the city. It is also called “la dotta” because it contains one of the oldest universities in the world. Bologna is the source of what has become known throughout the world as “bolognaise sauce” but try asking for “spaghetti bolognaise” in the region and they’ll more than likely ask if you’re “Americano”! As part of Balla’s menu we will prepare an authentic tagliatelle (made with flour and eggs of course) and toss it with a rich pork and veal ragùe. Emilia Romagna’s other cities are no less famous. Modena is not only home to Ferrari but also to traditionalbalsamic vinegar. Parma lends its name to both Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma.On the menu we will use some rare balsamic vinegar with our wood-grilled duck breast. And to finish, head chef Gabriele Taddeucci will make the lemon custard filled Torta della Nonna. Balla sommelier Fabio Danzi will select interesting and perfectly matched wines to accompany each of the four courses. Restaurant manager
