For this week’s ravioli we look to the the prime tomato fields of Puglia, in the small comune of San Pietro Vernotico. Here, in Italy’s driest region, tomatoes are salted and left out to dry out in the unrelenting heat of the sun, until they take on a potent but sweet flavour. We temper these tart morsels with fresh burrata, the jewel in the crown of Italian cheeses and another Puglian treasure. Renowned for its buttery consistency and delicate flavour, burrata is crafted by artisan cheesemakers across this region.
This creamy cheese also happens to be our head chef - and Pugliese native - Roberta’s favourite midnight snack, as local caseifici (cheesemongers) produce the delicacy through the night. Indeed, many are familiar with visits from Roberta after a few too many of her signature “La Vita É Dolce” (“Life is Sweet”) cocktails on a Friday night. We dress our ravioli in sage butter which teases out the sweet flavour of the sun-dried tomato. A scattering of formaggio completes this tribute to Pugliese cuisine and promises to transport you to southern Italia on a sensory journey!
Note: Please consume or freeze our pasta and sauces within 2 days of delivery.
- Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Salt the water (around ½tbsp per litre).
- Cook the pasta in the boiling water for around 3 minutes.
- Whilst the pasta cooks, put the butter in a pan, cover with a lid and heat until steaming. Once steaming, turn off the heat.
- Lift the pasta out of the water and transfer to the butter. Toss gently to coat.
- Sprinkle over the Italian cheese. Serve immediately. Buon appetito!
