This week we’ve filled each of our hand-crafted tortelloni with slow-roasted lamb, paying homage to Abruzzo and Molise. In these regions, lamb is a staple due to the long history of shepherding in the Italian south. The secret to good food, and as many Italians may argue, to a good life, is to take your time. Rushing the process of cooking often spoils the final dish, whilst pouring hours of love and care into culinary rituals yields mouth-watering results. Our roasted lamb filling is testament to this: with hours spent slowly roasting, dressed with a few seasonal herbs to enrich the flavour, the lamb becomes beautifully tender. Whilst many things have changed since the days when farmers in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains walked countless miles each day to tend to their sheep, one thing that remains unchanged is the dedication of the Abruzzese to this slow cooking process, a true labour of love.
Paired with a beautiful burro di rosmarino – rosemary butter – the flavours of the lamb are perfectly complemented by the subtle woody impression of this herb. Rosemary can be found thriving in the wild and the perennial nature of its growth means that there is a near-infinite supply available, if you know where to look. This means that this flavour combination has been used in Italian cooking for hundreds of years and our wonderful chefs have worked hard to strike just the right balance of ingredients here.
