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.
This dish quite rightly holds a well-deserved status as one of the classic indulgent tastes of Italy, with each tortellone carefully filled with beef and paired with a fresh truffle butter using black truffles sourced from Norcia, an area of southeast Umbria. Locally known as trifolati, this wonderful speciality is prized for its incredible aroma and distinctive taste. It’s one of the world’s most revered, and expensive, luxury ingredients – and for good reason! Unlike more familiar funghi, they’re grown underground. Consequently, recreating the necessary conditions for cultivating this delicacy prove rather difficult, but not without reward of course! We serve with a scattering of hazelnut crumb, enhancing the rich, meaty flavour of our beef whilst serving as a consummate companion for our beautiful trifolati.
