In Brodo

In Brodo…. simply meaning ‘In Broth’ is a traditional Italian way of eating Tortellini and Cappelletti. Here at Serious Food we are celebrating this pasta tradition from the Emilia-Romagna, an area of Italy renowned for its wonderful gastronomy. We have teamed up with our fantastic Italian pasta producer to bring you a theatre cooking concept that is simple to deliver, exceptionally tasty and has all the traditions of the best Nonna’s kitchen.

Your customers choose from a variety of filled pasta – Tortellini Bolognese, Cappelletti Romagnoli or Passatelli, which are then combined with a steaming hot broth (chicken, beef and vegetable) and finished with their favourite garnishes and toppings; everything from steamed kale, roasted broccoli and rocket to pan fried mushrooms and roasted aubergines.

Not only does this provide some great theatre in your restaurants, the recipes deliver excellent GP as well as happy customers. Download these recipe cards and call the Serious Food team today for more information on this exciting new concept…
