Tortelloni originate in Emilia-Romagna, specifically Modena, a city highly regarded for its thriving food culture. Indeed, this relatively modest Italian city lays claim to the critically acclaimed Osteria Francescana. Led by Italian chef Massimo Bottura, this restaurant achieved global fame after being crowned the world’s best restaurant in 2018, where the signature pasta of the region features amongst its exquisite selection of dishes.
In this indulgent filling, we've looked to the region of Umbria, distinguished in the gastronomic world by the supreme quality of its tartufi negri - black truffles. Combining with fine, marbled beef, we've created a rich, indulgent filling for our tortelloni. The sage butter accompaniment works, as if by casting some spell on the meat, to accentuate the flavour of the beef, whilst a generous sprinkling of hazelnuts adds a wonderful, earthy crunch. Our head chef, Roberta, recommends a glass of Tuscan wine - Chianti would make a fantastic choice - to accompany this extravagant dish. Buon appetito.
