Tortellini in brodo at Eataly

FEATURED PASTA: TORTELLINI

In celebration of Il Pastaio's first anniversary, we're going even deeper into the art of pasta, from ingredients to technique and beyond. Throughout the next year, Il Pastaio will be exploring a different pasta style, technique, and history every season. This January, we're featuring a classic pasta ripiena: tortellini. Hailing from Emilia-Romagna, legend has it that the shape was created as an homage to the belly button of Venus, as glimpsed through a keyhole by an innkeeper. These little folded and stuffed pasta are traditionally served in broth, which is exactly how you can try them at Il Pastaio! Try Tortellini in Brodo are stuffed with a traditional mix of Pork Loin, Mortadella, Parmigiano Reggiano® DOP, and served in Veal Broth. If you're not in the mood for the traditional broth, enjoy a plate of Tortellini e Panna, served with a sauce of Cream, Sage, and Nutmeg. Stop by to try these limited-time dishes, and watch as our pastai prepare them right in front of you!

OUR INGREDIENTS


FLOUR
Our semolina flour is certified organic and is produced by Molino Grassi, an Italian mill founded in Emilia-Romagna in 1934. Our soft grano tenero flour comes from Molino Pasini, a third-generation miller located in Lombardia.

FARM FRESH EGGS
In order to achieve a rich flavor and golden color in our fresh pasta, we use naturally-fertilized eggs from Chino Valley Ranchers, a third-generation egg farm located in California. After testing out different eggs, we found that Chino Valley eggs offer a brighter, redder yolk more akin to the eggs used to make fresh pasta in Italy.

FRESH SAUCES
For every shape, there is the perfect sauce! All of our sauces are created in-house, with recipes developed by Eataly's chefs together with our head pastaio, Luca Donofrio. We use both high-quality ingredients imported from small producers in Italy and fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from U.S. based farms and producers.

ARTISANAL TECHNIQUE

The secret to Eataly's pasta-making technique? Small hands and big hearts! Trained by Eataly NYC Flatiron's head pasta maker, Luca Donofrio, our team of pasta makers mix, knead, roll, cut and form each pasta shape from scratch following artisanal Italian methods. We also use pasta machines with bronze die attachments to extrude certain shapes. Each bronze die offers a perforated filter giving each pasta shape a rough, porous texture. The result? Pasta that absorbs the sauce more easily and unique mouthfeel.
