I had my very first pork ragu when I was in Italy. My grandmother owned a home in a tiny hillside town near Perugia and Orvieto. The town, Citta della Pieve, is a quintessential Umbrian town located just over the Tuscan border. There was a restaurant called Bruno's that we went to all the time. It was a small family-run place with some of the most spectacular food I have ever had. I happen to come from a family of Gourmands. We take our food very seriously - not pretentiously, but seriously! For more, and recipe, read here.
