In the inner restaurant, many traditional dishes enriched by a touch of originality.

If you are looking for a recommended restaurant or agritourism where to taste great dishes near Bologna you must try Il Murello agritourism.  Agritourism for people with coeliac disease, offers gluten-free  excellent dishes: gluten-free green lasagna Bolognese, gluten-free tortellini with cream sauce, gluten-free potato triangles and cheek lard with chives and many other first courses with whom only we can surprise you!

The whole staff training and education hasn’t been easy, and neither learning to  knead a kind of dough different from the usual one and never made before. Over the years our sfogline managed to find the right balance for doughs without gluten, with a lot of diligence we succeeded to elaborate and create very special and good gluten-free  dishes, let you be surprised by our dishes!

Gluten isn’t a fundamental protein in our diet, so removing  it doesn’t create any nutrional imbalance. But being present in many  grains, as everyone knows rich in fiber, this aspect is to consider: for this reason eating legumes, fruit and vegetables to balance this shortage of vegetable fiber is necessary. Who discovers to be coeliac thinks to be forced to give up to all food eaten until the moment of diagnosis. Luckily it isn’t so. At Il Murello agritourism we propose gluten-free  tasting menus for people with coeliac disease, with the same dishes of the dining companions who normally digest.

Some fundamental rules of gluten-free cuisine, for gluten-free restaurants like as for homemade food :

  • Before starting to cook without gluten, always wash hands, workspace and kitchenware well to be sure that there aren’t still previous traces of flour. 
  • Make sure that every single ingredient is among those permitted included in AIC manual and in case of doubt, consult labels and the manual. 
  • Let’s create some dishes starting from simple and not manufactured  elements like milk, meat, fish, eggs, fruit, vegetables, potatoes, cheese, yogurt, legumes and grains that don’t contain gluten (rice, millet, corn, buckwheat) so to follow the dish from its preparation to the table. 
  • Cook gluten-free food separately, in different places from those ones with gluten (don’t use the same water or the same oil, don’t mix with the same spoon and don’t make coffee with the same coffee maker used for barley coffee). 
  • Avoid all wooden cutlery, wooden cutting board, wooden kitchenware and non-stick pans that tend to absorb food.

For whom is looking for an excellent restaurant in province of Bologna the ideal solution is an agritourism where to taste a  homemade great green lasagna Bolognese. At few kilometers from Bologna there is Il Murello agritourism, ready to delight their customers with some tempting proposals.In the inner restaurant many traditional dishes enriched by a touch of originality.

Are you looking for a very good restaurant or agritourism recommended for typical Bolognese dishes? Near Bologna you’ll find Il Murello agritourism where Emilian traditional dishes remained the same like in the past.

Even though its origins are still shrouded in mystery , no doubt that the lasagna is a very ancient food. It seems that already the  Etruscans prepared a kind of lasagna made of  emmer wheat, and it is certain that already  the Romans prepared a variety of it that the poet Horace liked very much. Indeed, in the Roman era  there was  a dish called lasanum that was made of squares of  grilled pasta with vegetables and cheese. The idea to overlap  these strips of pasta, instead, dates back to the 14th century, when Francesco Zambrini decided to alternate a layer of pasta and a layer of cheese, creting the first recipe of lasagna how we know it now. Through the centuries this dish spread in all Italy,  creating many different kinds of lasagna, from vegetable lasagna to cheese lasagna, so almost every Italian region has a typical version of lasagna by now. Among them the most famous in the world is, probably, Bolognese lasagna. It is a long preparation that requires a lot of dedication and love, but gives great satisfaction.

The lasagna is a classic first course that is  so good and tasty that never goes out of fashion. It is a quite demanding procedure, maybe for this reason Green lasagna is prepared for  celebrations or special  events, but it is really worth the time it takes to taste this fantastic lasagna, that has nothing to do with  the ready lasagna you can buy at the supermarket or at the take-away shop .Meat sauce and  béchamel prepared with selected and fresh ingredients,  and to speed they can be anticipated the day before, then heating them in the  microwave oven or in bain-marie ( the  béchamel) will be enough ,adding a drizzle of milk to make the béchamel  soft.  The green fresh pasta  with eggs and spinach,  according to the basic recipe enclosed, can be prepared in advance even the day before, it is parboiled and dried in kitchen clothes, eventually  wrapped as a roll in oven paper made of layers  and put  in the fridge, it will be ready for the baking tray.

 Green lasagna Bolognese, such as tortellini,  is available even without gluten, indeed from  April 2011 we are part of the group of informed restaurants AiC: Italian Society for the Celiac disease. We have become experts in every aspect of the management , from the cookery to the protection of your table seating.

Tortellini bolognese in broth or with cream sauce

Who was born with the smell of tortellini that accompanies every special day of our childhood can recognize homemade tortellini at a glance, but especially true tortellini of the Bolognese tradition. The preparation and culture of tortellini is part of our story, so we are proud to spread this Emilian speciality to our customers. Il Murello agritourism proposes his majesty  tortellino in broth, with cream sauce and even tortellini without gluten for people with coeliac disease. 

If you look for a place near Bologna where to eat healthy you can’t miss Il Murello recommended restaurant.  

The name tortellino that in Boognese is called  “turtléin”, comes from the diminutive of “ tortello”, which derives from the term “torta”( cake). The tortellini are a typical dish for Christmas lunch, they can make the meal elegant and rich in history.

There are several legends about the origin of this dish. One of them narrates that it was born in Castelfranco Emilia thanks to the owner of the Corona inn who, spying a noble lady who was a guest through her room keyhole, and so struck by the beauty of her navel, decided to reproduce it as a cooking speciality.

On 7th December 1974 the “ Brotherhood of the Tortellino” and “the Italian Academy of Cookery “ deposited the recipe for the filling at the Bologna Chamber of Commerce;  it  prescribes a stuffing prepared with pork loin, raw ham, Bologna mortadella, Parmigiano Reggiano, eggs and nutmeg in a dough of flour and eggs of 6/10 mm.

Tortellini, according to the Bolognese tradition, are to be cooked and eaten only in a good capon or hen broth.

The preparation is quite laborious, but the choice of  raw material surely makes the difference for  tortellini. Our “sfogline”  ( women who roll pasta sheets) prepare the dough with their hands, with mastery and using the roll pin skilfully. The dough obtained in this way is  rolled in a damp cloth to dry a little, at this point it’s ready to be stretched out on a cutting board and be cut  in squares of 3,5 cm per side, at the centre the right quantity of filling has been placed. The ingredients of our stuffing is a secret that we’ll reveal to you when you taste them…

This speciality, like  green lasagna Bolognese, is available even without gluten, indeed from April 2011 we are part of the group of informed restaurants AiC: Italian Society for the Celiac disease. We have become experts in every aspect of the management , from the cookery to the protection of your table seating.

The whole staff training and education hasn’t been easy, and neither kneading a kind of dough never made before. Our sfogline managed to work and find the right balance for doughs without gluten, it has been complicated, but with diligence we succeeded to elaborate and create very special and good gluten-free dishes, let you be surprised by our dishes!

Bolognese cutlet

You can’t leave  Bologna without having tasted its tradional dishes. A cuisine rich in story and tradition, among the first 10 typical dishes there is surely the Bolognese cutlet, a main course re-elaborated in a refined and exquisite way. 

Come to taste the Bolognese cutlet of Il Murello agritourism,  a restaurant just near Bologna and Imola where you’ll enjoy the unique flavour of many Bolognese culinary specialities enriched by a touch of originality.

The classic Milanese cutlet is the most popular version, but the most refined is surely the Bolognese cutlet.   Differences between the two recipes are stronger than  similarities: veal meat, of course, but a different cut. In this case loin, that is boneless leg, so the term cutlet is a little misleading. In this way you’ll get the superb Bolognese cutlet, otherwise called Petronian.

A forbidden dream. A nourishing, rich  dish, symbol of that Bologna defined  “the fat”, but deeply satisfying. It’s not a famous dish, but when you taste it it’s difficult to forget and that will make you feel thee desire to enjoy it still for a long moment. The Bolognese recipe of the cutlet, spreaded more or less in the whole Emilia Romagna, prescribes that meat, generally of veal, is breaded, fried and then put in the oven covered with  grated cheese (Parmigiano Reggiano) and raw sweet ham like Parma.

It’s an important and old preparation, already recognizable in some banquets dishes of the early 17th century, but codified only two centuries later.

 In this case the book  «La Scienza in cucina e l’Arte di mangiar bene» of Artusi is an interesting source, at the entry“ Cutlets with ham”. The ‘valdostana’ stuffed with fontina cheese and sometimes white truffle and the French ‘cordon bleu’, garnished with cheese and cooked ham  are similar, but can’t equal a combination of Emilian ingredients under the sign of absolute excellence.

This speciality is available even without gluten, indeed from April 2011 we are part of the group of informed restaurants AiC: Italian Society for the Celiac disease. We have become experts in every aspect of the management , from the cookery to the protection of your table seating.

Crescentine and tigelle

Crescentine and tigelle are often repeated and spreaded in the whole Emilia Romagna, but finding the soft, light and not oily crescentina is very difficult. 

At few kilometers from  Bologna and  Imola there is Il Murello agritourism  where maximum attention is paid to propose top quality crescentine and tigelle . Also the combinations proposed with first choice cold cuts, jam in sweet and sour sauce , fresh squacquerone cheese and il Murello Bolognese sauce are of high quality.

In a small town near Bologna, you’ll find a wonderful restaurant suggested for the most demanding palates.

You must try our Tigelle together with Emilian fried Crescentine, not at all  oily, of perfect consistency to balance every combination: from first choice cold cuts to the slightly spicy  sausage and cherry tomato sauce, the fresh and delicate squacquerone cheese with the warm crescentina…they are sensations to try at least once in your life. The crescenta or crescentina ( plural form crescenti or crescentine) is a kind of bread  typical of our Emilian area.  The original name ( in the Modena Apennines) of this food is the “crescente” but a lot of variations are spreaded by now. The terms “crescente” e “crescentina” are used also in Bologna and Reggio Emilia areas. The tigella is a small, round flat bread typical of the Emilian Apennines, particularly among Bologna and Modena, where it’s eaten stuffed with cold cuts and/or cheese. Usually people eat several tigelle, because an only tigella is very small; for this reason it’s common using the plural form tigelle. Tigelle is the name of the terracotta cookware where once upon a time crescentine in Emilian Apennines mountains were cooked. So tigelle are terracotta discs that were heated in the fireplace and then stacked interposing the dough and chestnut leaves to season,until everything is well done.

Our crescentine and tigelle menu  includes: Crescentine and Tigelle a go-go! Cold cuts ( Parma ham, salami, local bacon, mortadella Bologna IGP, pig head sausage and crackling from Romagna), squacquerone (typical fresh cheese), spring onions typical of Medicina and Pesto sauce of the Murello, jam in sweet and sour sauce (onion and watermelon or peppers), slightly spicy sausage meat sauce, coffee or infusions, tasting of our liqueurs..

This menu is available  even without gluten, with the only variation of the piadina in place of tigelle.indeed from April 2011 we are part of the group of informed restaurants AiC: Italian Society for the Celiac disease. We have become experts in every aspect of the management , from the cookery to the protection of your table seating.
