RECIPE: Bolognese Bianca

Sugo alla Bolognese is certainly one of those classic recipes that everyone has tried at least once in their life. One variation of this classic dish is the Bolognese Bianca, which is prepared without tomato sauce. The first documented recipe dates back to 1891, in Pellegrino Artusi‘s book “La scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiare bene” (Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well). Artusi is considered the father of modern cookery and had a great passion for cooking and literature, writing several publications.
