We have selected a fabulously rich and aromatic Barolo, the 'king of wines', to add incredible depth and flavour to this limited edition 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 intesely 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”) an alluring, ribbon-shaped pasta with beautiful wavy edges and a striking appearance. In 1997 the Italian government named the mafalde pasta, or “mafaldine” ("little mafalde"), in honour of Princess Mafalda of Savoy. Princess Mafalda died during the II World War, whilst under arrest in a concentration camp. The mafalde pasta is said to remind of the princess’ curls. Princess Mafalda’s life had been marked by tragedy before this: 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.
