A Bunch Of Bologna

What sad sequence of events could bring us to the condition where we are most reminded of pink tubular "baloney" when we see the word "Bologna". What we should be thinking of is one of the world's great centers of culinary tradition and decadence. Similar events bring us to the sad condition of thinking of "Ragu" as a jarred supermarket red sauce instead of the highest form of slow-simmered meat sauce. "Ragu alla Bolognese", then, is doubly likely to be the most mis-interpreted menu item... We feature it on next week's menu with pride and trepidation. Trepidation that inaccurate associations will cause you to miss this excellent dish. One of my all-time personal favorites...
