For our readers, lovers of the Italian cuisine, today we have a rather challenging proposal: are you ready to prepare the authentic Italian Lasagne alla Bolognese?

Our food blogger of the month will explain how it’s done. Serena Crivelli is the author of the blog Dolci Pensieri (Sweet Thoughts) and lives in the Como province with her husband and her baby Matteo. She learned to cook watching her mother, and years later, her father-in-law, also a skillful cook. In fact, Serena’s cuisine is simple, genuine and of the classic, home-cooked variety.

Preparing food as it used to be done, in other words dedicating the right amount of time, a pinch of passion and much love.

Fresh, high-quality ingredients are necessities, and such concepts as "artisanal" and "free range" are second-nature to most Tuscans.
