A specialty of Lombard cuisine, Ossobuco is a rich sauce where cross-cut beef shanks and braised vegetables are suspended in a delicious red wine broth. We’ve created our full, flavoursome ragù taking inspiration from this traditional delicacy. Whilst there is no denying that Ossobucco originated in Lombardia, the town to which this dish belongs is a matter of some dispute. In 2007, the City Council of Milan added Oss Buss (Ossobuco in Milanese dialect) to their list of Denominazioni Comunali - community denominations - substantiating their claim to its heritage. However, other smaller towns still profess to have created this well-loved Italian sauce.
The perfect winter warmer, our Ossobuco ragù is the ideal remedy to the cold winter nights that are rapidly drawing in. Served with fresh mafalde our bold sauce delightfully envelopes each beautiful strand of pasta. Also known as “reginette” (Italian for “little queens”), Mafalde are an alluring, ribbon-shaped pasta with wavy edges, named after Princess Mafalda of Savoy and said to evoke her luxurious curls.
Join us on our winter tour and indulge in one of northern Italy’s finest dishes. We promise this delicious delicacy will transport you to a cozy chalet deep in the snow-dusted pine forests of Lombardia.
