In Bologna (Italy) is the Tortellini day

This event is a continuation of last year’s "Sfoglino d’Oro" where professional "sfoglini", winners of various national and international contests, had been competing over the course of the year.

tortellini day

The public watched the contest-show, a chance to promote and valorize the best of the cui-sine of Bologna: the sfoglia (a kind of rolled egg-based pastry) and the "sfoglini" (the professionals who roll the sfoglia). The event was hosted by a famous national television personality while the jury included institutional representatives and it was presided by Alessandra Spisni, multi-winner of  the "Mattarello d’oro" and "Tortellino d'oro" awards and the "Maestra di Sfoglia" title on the Ital-ian RaiUno TV show “La prova del Cuoco”.

This year: the tortellino, unfailing protagonist of the Bolognese cuisine, will be welcoming every-one who is curious to discover the city in its multiple facets. Among artistic itineraries and special menus, through the "Sfoglino d'Oro", a day dedicated to fun and good food.
