In this week’s limited edition dish, we serve freshly made gluten free pasta. Regardless of whether you are able to consume gluten, this is pasta eccezionale, made in the artisan tradition and carefully cut into beautiful pieces of penne.
Pasta "alla Norma" is named after the opera "Norma" from the composer Vincenzo Bellini, who was born in 19th century Catania, Sicily's second-largest city. Our Norma sauce is made from aubergines grown in the outskirts of this sun-drenched island city.
Tomatoes are just as important to the success of a Norma sauce - here, we use the plump and blushing San Marzano variety, whose thick flesh and sweet taste evoke the best of Italy in summer. A final scattering of Ricotta salata - a firm, salty cheese - completes this typical Sicilian dish. And we have to tell you, it really is sublime.
