Today we cross the threshold of the Grand Hotel Majestic “già Baglioni” in the company of the manager Tiberio Biondi, who explains to journalist Savina Confaloni how the Hotel has always celebrated the food and wine traditions and innovations of the Emilia Romagna region in general and the city of Bologna in particular. The Majestic is like a second home for the Bolognesi themselves and for celebrities passing through. Ever since it first opened in 1912, the Hotel has been a symbol of everything that is outstanding in Bologna, especially its cooking – the city is Italy’s food capital, after all. What better opportunity to discover the fare of the Ristorante I Carracci, housed in an 18th-century hall with ceilings decorated with frescoes by the school of the Carracci brothers. Here amid elegant furnishings, they serve the finest dishes of Emilia-Romagna, revisited by the Chef and accompanied by the finest wines. And at the Enoteca Morandi – the fruit of a special project developed by the Manager himself – guests can immerse themselves in local gastronomic culture with experiences that rouse and play with all five senses, organised by the Hotel with the assistance of a special guide, Executive Chef Cristian Mometti.
