We have selected a fabulously rich and aromatic Barolo, the ‘king of wines’, to add incredible depth and flavour to this special ragù. A powerful and tannic wine, Barolo needs to be matched with similarly bold foods. Our beef and Barolo ragù gently simmers for hours until reaching a consistency so silky that it falls off the bone and becomes the glorious focal point of this rich and intensely meaty ragù. This sauce pairs perfectly with wonderful ribbons of mafalde pasta, which are the ideal size – and shape – to catch the sauce.
Mafalde, also known as “reginette” (Italian for “little queens”) are an alluring, ribbon-shaped pasta with beautiful wavy edges and a striking appearance named after Princess Mafalda of Savoy. In 1995, the Italian government commemorated Princess Mafalda with a limited edition stamp. Princess Mafalda died during the Second World War, whilst detained in a German concentration camp. The mafalde pasta is said to evoke the princess’ curls. This wasn’t the first time Princess Mafalda’s life had been marked by tragedy: the SS Principessa Mafalda Italian transatlantic ocean liner was named after her. This was one of the most luxurious ships at the time. Unfortunately, it sank off the coast of Brazil in 1927.
