Sud Forno Emilia-Romagna Meal (November 2020)
We are back this week with a new box from Sud Forno's Executive Chef Giovanna Alonzi! This week Giovanna teamed up with life partner and Terroni Queen Chef Fabio Moro to bring you a meal box from Fabio's home region of Emilia-Romagna! Fabio comes from a lineage of pasta makers in Bologna where his mother won the "Mattarello d'Oro" or golden rolling pin which is an award given to the best pasta maker in the region. As a result, Fabio's Bolognese sauce is one of the best around! As a bonus to go with Fabio's Bolognese, Giovanna has hand-rolled the tagliatelle so you're in for a real homemade treat.
Like always we'll have fresh Sud Forno bread made by our Head Baker Luca Rotatori and we'll end the meal off with a sweet Italian rice cake from our Head Pastry Chef Armando Palmieri.
Choose the multi-course meal on its own or pair it with a selection of wines and bags from our wine agency Cavinona!

Remigio 101 Lambrusco Di Sorbara DOC: Lively rosè colour with a fruity and sour taste. The Sorbara is regarded as the highest-quality Lambrusco clone; the grapes provide a more concentrated flavour. Refreshing and vibrant, best consumed young.
2018 Aulente Rosso Rubicone IGT: This intense red-ruby wine develops fruity and floral notes. The nose reveals hints of rose, cherry and sweet spices. It is a full-bodied wine of quick and easy approach which demonstrates how the Sangiovese can also be soft and pleasant, far from any roughness and aggressiveness.
2018 Fiorile Romagna Albana DOCG: Amber yellow with copper tinges. Broad to the nose, it has notes of pine resin, citrus fruits, apricot and mineral hints that come from the muddy limestone soil. Fresh with a tactile element that comes from the tannins in the skins.
Antipasto Emiliano (Crescentine e Tigelle): Preheat oven to 300F and heat the crescentine and tigelle for 5-7 minutes. Slice the tigelle in half (the round little breads), spread pesto Modenese and serve warm. Crescentine and tigelle can both be served with friggione and mortadella.
Tagliatelle alla Bolognese: Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. In a pan heat the bolognese ragu until it boils, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook the tagliatelle in the boiling water for 4 minutes. Strain and add to the ragu. Cook for two more minutes adding some parmigiano and butter. Divide the tagliatelle in two plates, finish with some more parmigiano and serve.
Pinzimonio: Plate all vegetables on a platter and serve with olive oil and maldon salt.
Cotoletta alla Bolognese: Preheat oven to 350F. Remove plastic cover and drizzle demi glace over cutlet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese has melted and begins to bubble.
Torta di Riso: Ready to serve.
