Girasoli literally translates to “sunflowers”, in reference to the shape of this beautiful pasta. Girasoli pasta get their shape from special molds that the chef uses to delicately mold the dough with. It is similar to a cookie cutter, allowing the pastaio making them to create special designs. Our girasoli are filled with truffles & Pecorino, one of Italy’s best-loved cheeses. The sharpness of the pecorino balances the depth and decadence of our beautiful truffles, foraged in the Sibillini mountains of Umbria.
Ancestors of the truffle have been used in Italian cooking since ancient times, with the first mention of them being in 2nd century, AD. Ancient Romans used them to enhance flavour, instead of using them as a standout ingredient as we do today. Our truffle & Pecorino girasoli are complemented with a simple but delicious truffle butter.
