Hundreds of Italian chefs cooked bolognese sauce in order to show the world how to make the classic recipe correctly.
While the dish has been a staple for millions of diners around the world for decades, Italians claimed the original reciope has become so corrupted it is in urgent need of culinary rescue. Here is an authentic recipe, approved by Italian chefs, for traditional spaghetti bolognese.
SERVES
4
INGREDIENTS
2 tbsp olive oil

6 rashers of streaky ‘pancetta’ bacon, chopped

2 large onions, chopped

3 garlic cloves, crushed

2 carrots, chopped

Stick of celery

1kg/2¼lb lean minced beef

2 large glasses of red wine

2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

2 fresh or dried bay leaves

salt and freshly ground black pepper

800g-1kg/1¾-2¼lb dried tagliatelle

freshly grated parmesan cheese, to serve

METHOD

  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan and fry the bacon until golden over a medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, frying until softened. Increase the heat and add the minced beef. Fry it until it has browned. Pour in the wine and boil until it has reduced in volume by about a third. Reduce the temperature and stir in the tomatoes and celery.
  2. Cover with a lid and simmer over a gentle heat for 1-1½ hours until it’s rich and thickened, stirring occasionally.
  3. Cook the tagliatelle in plenty of boiling salted water. Drain and divide between plates. Sprinkle a little parmesan over the pasta before adding a good ladleful of the sauce. Finish with a further scattering of cheese and a twist of black pepper.
