The beautiful hills and pastures of Lombardy have earned this northern Italian region a reputation for its agricultural produce. Miles of green hillside and sprawling meadows make this area the perfect location for rearing livestock. In fact, Lombardia is even home to one of sixteen protected breeds of cattle, the Varzese-Ottonese-Tortonese. Reared to provide both milk and beef, this gorgeous, tan-coloured specimen is one of the region’s greatest assets.
As a traditional method for cooking meat, the slow process of braising beef captures the unhurried way of living often synonymous with Italia. Our beef, after being lightly fried, is allowed to stew for hours and hours in a tightly sealed pot filled with a blend of aromatic herbs, carefully selected vegetables and a generous splash of vino. This allows all of the delicious flavours to be absorbed into the juices of the meat, penetrating right to the heart of the joint. Through this meticulous operation, our beef is cooked to perfection and is imbued with a delicious richness which shines in these tasty parcels of tortelloni. The depth of the flavour in the meat means that this dish is at its best dressed with only a simple burro e salvia (sage butter) and a generous smattering of Italian cheese.
