Tortelloni originate from Modena, a city in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The exact origin of the shape is widely disputed, but one theory is tortelloni were meant to replicate the shape of a turtle shell, which is famously displayed throughout Modena’s 17th century architecture.
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 in their banquets. Roman banquets, known as “convivium”, were a well-established tradition in ancient Rome. There were 3 types: “epulum”, a public feast, “cena”, typically a private dinner eaten in mid-afternoon and “comissatio” a private drinking party.
We source our truffles from the truffle-rich countryside of Umbria & pair them with marbled beef to create the ultimate earthy, rich & flavourful filling. Our tortelloni, which are infused with beautiful chestnut flour, are complemented by truffle butter and Parmesan cheese, bringing you a moment of eating that will seem as extravagantly indulgent as it will elegant. Just how it should be.
