Bologna is a fascinating city. Large enough to never be boring, yet small enough to never feel overwhelming, it sits roughly at the tripoint between Milan, Venice and Florence, but receives only a fraction of the tourists. It gets stereotyped as a city of communists, students and pasta obsessives – which it is – but it’s also a dynamic, forward-thi...

Romagna has a type of bread called “piada” that is soft, thin, warm and fragrant, and is always cooked on a terracotta dish called a teglia. Clay dishes have been manufactured in Montetiffi for centuries, using a technique that dates back to the distant past, perhaps even prehistoric times. Two terracotta dishes are preserved in the archaeological...

In a city flooded with Italian restaurants, Rezdôra managed to stand out when it opened in New York last year. Stefano Secchi’s traditional handmade pastas turned the tiny restaurant in Flatiron one of the most coveted tables in the city before Covid-19 hit.  The last few months the restaurant has offered takeout and, recently, outdoor dining.

The reason had to do with its sheer sweetness — it was less a wine and more like a carbonated wine cooler, a drink that was more akin to, say, cherry soda than a quality Italian sip. But these days...
