Everyone that has grown up in an Italian family has childhood memories of waiting for the lasanga to come out of the oven.
Beautifully layered pasta with their families home cooked sauce and cheese. Some mums would place peas and meatballs while others prided themselves for the simplicity of the pasta and the slow cooked sauce.
So what is the perfect lasagna ?
The truth is that the perfect lasagna is the one that once you eat it, it takes you to all the childhood memories and flavours that take you away for that spit second. It’s the one that makes you want more once you have finished the last piece.
So over the years, after speaking to experts about how they make their perfect lasagna, we have come up with a lasanga that our customers just can’t get enough of. We are super proud of our lasagna and have made a pledge to keep the process of improvement going.
Here are some facts about lasagna that we have found.
According to some historians –
Lasagne originated in Italy, traditionally ascribed to the city of Naples (Campania), where the first modern recipe was created in the Middle Ages and published in Liber de Coquina (The Book of Cookery), and became a traditional dish. Traditional lasagne is made by interleaving layers of pasta with layers of sauce, made with ragù, bechamel, Parmigiano-Reggiano and chopped hard boiled eggs. In other regions and outside of Italy it is common to find lasagne made with ricotta or mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, various meats (e.g., ground beef, pork or chicken), miscellaneous vegetables (e.g., spinach, zucchini, mushrooms) and typically flavored with wine, garlic, onion, and oregano. In all cases the lasagne are oven-baked.

So what is your favourite style of lasagne?
Massimo Bottura who runs one of the best restaurants in Italy has made a dish that looks like a wafer of cheese and is what his take on lasagne is. It has the flavour of the burnt edges from the pasta off the lasagne tray.
Other people say that just the smell of lasagne cooking in the oven is enough to make them drift into heaven and just be driven by that amazing smell.
We have been told by so many of our clients that our lasagne is one of the most authentic tasting pasta dishes that can be bought. This actually makes us so proud. We go to extreme lengths to maintain a natural slow cooked flavour, so we know we have hit the nail on the head when the positive feedback floods in.
