A kitchen from the Italian Riviera
pasta fresca - sughi - torte salate
100% HAND MADE
WITH THE FRESHEST INGREDIENTS
WHAT WE ARE MAKING THIS WEEK:
Our fresh pasta is freshly made to order using organic stoneground flour, durum semolina flour and organic, free range eggs; delicious with any of our sauces or pestos.
Size matters! TRENETTE are similar to tagliatelle, only thinner (about 3-4 mm wide), whilst TAGLIOLINI are about 2mm wide and slight thicker than tagliatelle (we like to think of them as 'squared spaghetti').
Minimum order is for 2 people; net weight approx. 250g (generous adult portion)
If you have treated your lasagne sheets almost as an afterthought thinking that the supermarket bought are just fine, we are about to change that! We make our sheets with the same high quality stone ground flour and eggs we use for all our fresh pasta. Trust us on this, a real game changer.
Sheets are supplied raw and must be cooked in hot water for approx. 3 minutes before use.
Sheets measure 18x13cm; net weight approx.350g
RAVIOLI DI ZUCCA
Ravioli filled with organic roasted pumpkins, curd cheese and fresh marjoram. Serve with some good quality melted butter or our walnut sauce.
chards, wild rocket, ricotta and Parmesan cheese
The Ligurian name refers to the 'bellied' pasta shape which is very similar to large tortellini; a true classic from Liguria when paired with our walnut pesto.
TAGLIATELLE VERDI 'VECCHIA MANIERA'
Green tagliatelle 'old style'
Usually made using the bits of pasta dough 'stained' with the filling when making ravioli genovese, they are so delicious we believe they deserve their own place at the table! We mix in the dough fresh chards, fresh marjoram/oregano and Parmesan cheese to give this hearty tagliatelle bags of flavour. Delicious served with tomato based sauces or our creamy walnut sauce.
LASAGNE AL PESTO
Lasagne with pesto Genovese
An unmissable classic from Liguria: layers of freshly made lasagne sheets, creamy béchamel sauce, basil pesto and extra cheese on top.
SQUID INK TAGLIOLINI
Squid ink lends a pleasant, subtle brininess to this pasta, pairing nicely with our fresh mussel sauce.
pasta sauces + pesto
SALSA DI NOCI
walnuts, milk, garlic; creamy and rich, perfect with all kinds of pasta, but particularly good with pansotti.
SUGO ALLA MARINARA
olives, capers, anchovies sauce
Black olives, wild capers, anchovies and fresh parsley.
SUGO DI MUSCOLI
Fresh British mussels, tomatoes, white wine and fresh parsley.
THE BEST TOMATO SAUCE
Simple does it! Only Tomatoes, locally grown onions and a touch of basil go into this deliciously sweet and rich sauce. Just add parmesan (highly recommend it!).
A beautiful, glossy and rich sauce made by slowly cooking charred aubergines, lentils and tomatoes. Perfect with tagliatelle or other short pasta, but also served as a main with some polenta or toasted bread.
savoury vegetable pies
The Italian Riviera is well known for its traditional savoury pies: vegetable-based fillings, which vary according to season and often enriched with eggs, cheese and fresh herbs, are encased in crisp unleavened pastry made with just flour, olive oil and water. The renowned Torta Pasqualina is a very fine example of this quintessential Ligurian dish.
One small pie will feed 1 person as a lunch option - when paired with a fresh salad or other vegetables - or 2 people as a starter.
Our current selection includes:
TORTA DI ZUCCA
Seasonal squash, chestnut mushrooms, curd cheese
filling of seasonal squash, chestnut mushrooms and curd cheese wrapped in a rustic multi-grain olive oil pastry
TORTA DI CAVOLI
Sweet cabbage, garlic, salted lemon
filling of sweet cabbage, garlic and salted lemons wrapped in spelt olive oil pastry
