The Yorkshire Pasta Company Tortiglioni No.4
Pronounced “tohr-tee-lyo-nee” in Italian or “toe-tig-lio-knee” rather slowly in Yorkshire.
Similar to Rigatoni, but with more pronounced grooves that actually swirl their way around the pasta. Hence their name, which stems from the Latin ‘torquere’, meaning ‘to turn’. Perfect with simple sauces, zesty salads and fish dishes. Big, bold and mighty in appearance, texture and taste.
The difference… locally milled wheat flour, traditional artisan techniques and a love for REAL pasta.
The taste is second to none. We dry our pasta slowly overnight at low temperatures to allow robust and wholesome flavours to develop.
The eating experience is sublime. We use traditional bronze dies to give our pasta that important rough surface that sauces cling to.
We produce a more sustainable and tastier British pasta. Our ‘family secret’ blend of locally milled wheat flours replace imported Durum semolina. And all of our pasta is packed in 100% recyclable paper bags. We are plastic free and run using solar power too.
