About Rossopomodoro:
What sets Rossopomodoro apart is that they are truly Neapolitan. The chefs come from Neapolitan pizzaioli families and make Neapolitan dishes using ingredients sourced from the Napoli region so you won’t find a more genuine Neapolitan experience outside Napoli. The head pizzaioli have a minimum of ten years experience in their craft so know exactly what they are doing when it comes to making the perfect Neapolitan pizza.

What is Neapolitan pizza? It’s different because it has a raised border (cornicione) and a soft juicy centre because of the proving and cooking method. Each Rossopomodoro has a huge wood-fired oven that
blasts heat of at least 450 degrees celsius allowing the pizza to cook in less than 90 seconds.

Rossopomodoro’s dough goes through a traditional slow proving process of at least 24 hours, a method that ensures when the dough is cooked it is light and digestible. A soft and juicy centre is why Neapolitans often fold their pizzas while eating it on the go – want us to show you how? Just ask.

Racy Neapolitan festive game comes to London

Neapolitan Tombola

Rossopomodoro are inviting Londoners to play the historical (and rather racy) Neapolitan game ‘La Tombola’ this Christmas to win prizes.

Traditionally played by Italian families at Christmas, ‘La Tombola’ is a board game much like bingo but every number has a meaning. Usually played with cards and dried pasta Londoners are being asked to tweet a number daily with which they associate and if their number matches the daily draw they win a meal for two with wine.

Will tweeters choose number 17 “The Misfortune/A Disgrazie” after misbehaving at their Christmas party? Perhaps number 21 “The Naked Lady/La Femmena Annura” might be more apt if the party went particularly well or what about number 16 “The Bottom/’O Culo” on which you’d rather be sat and not out Christmas shopping.

If you would like further information on La Tombola experience
please do not hesitate to contact Krista Booker

About
La Tombola was born in 1734 out of a battle between King Charles III of Bourbon and the Dominican Friar Gregorio Maria Rocco. The King was willing to make the lottery official in the Kingdom because it would have increased funds raised by taxes; by contrast the Friar considered the lottery an amoral and misleading leisure. The King was successful, of course, but only on the condition that during Christmas time the game would have been suspended to not distract people from prayers. Unwilling to give up on the game, Neapolitans turned a public game into a more intimate and familiar one: the 90 numbers matched as many meanings and those of the Neapolitan tombola are the most allusive, smutty and sometimes raunchy. Nowadays at Christmas time the game is played in homes throughout Napoli for lighthearted festive fun. That said, gambling on the outcome is often involved and, when passionately competitive Neapolitans get together, heated arguments can be expected. Well, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without family squabbles.

Prize
A daily prize announced at 10pm. If the number matches the draw you win a meal for two with wine.
A Christmas Day Draw will act as an accumulator and all daily entries will be matched against 5 numbers, the closest match will win a Pizza Masterclass for 5.

How to Enter
Choose your number from the Rossopomodoro Pinterest Board and tweet @RosspomodoroUK including #NeapolitanTombola
Competition closes on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Day Draw announced on Christmas Day.

Buffalo Mozzarella Season

Buffalo Mozzarella
Buffalo Mozzarella

Did you know that from July to the end of August is the very best time for enjoying Buffalo Mozzarella?

During these months in Campania the weather is at it’s warmest, the grass and herbs at their sweetest and water buffalo are happiest. Naturally this produces the tastiest cheese. Rossopomodoro transport their fresh buffalo mozzarella twice weekly direct from Campania and it goes from production to plate in 24 hours bringing London the tastiest and freshest mozzarella possible.

To celebrate these two special months our client Rossopomodoro have introduced two special sizes (in addition to the permanent menu items). These larger sizes also benefit further in taste due to retaining freshness.

1. The Mozzarellona : a huge 1kg serving parties of 6-10 people – £40
2. The Trecciona (plaited, image below): a giant 3kg serving parties of 20-30 people – £120 (one week advance pre-order required)
Both are served with tomato bruschetta, grilled vegetables and prosciutto di Parma.

There is further information below for your interest including a quote from the producer, tips about the cheese and availability details. We would also like to invite you to a tasting of the larger size at your convenience. If you would like to join us please let me know your interest and we can work dates around your availability.

We hope buffalo mozzarella season is of interest to you and if you require any specific information please do not hesitate to contact Krista Booker

Location and Availability

Buffalo Mozzarella Season will be celebrated until the end of August in Rossopomodoro Camden, Chelsea, Covent Garden, Hoxton, Oxford Street, Wandsworth.

Quote:

“This is the best time to mozzarella as grazing animals eat the sweetest grass and fresh herbs that grow wild, this imparts flavour to the milk giving it characteristics and unique aromas. Climate of Naples is perfect for the animals and it is in these months when the Water Buffalos are content. Further north it gets too cold, east too dry and south too hot.Distribution is also a key element as buffalo mozzarella should be eaten after around a day from production. All factors combined provides a true reason to celebrate this wonderful product.”
Nino Lombardi, Mozzarella Producer, Bellopede E Goglino

Mozzarella Tips:

– The word mozzarella is from mozzare “to cut off”. This refers to the technique of separating the cheese for individual shaping.
– The best way to eat mozzarella is cutting into the sphere in a wedge like you would with a cake. This way you can experience the soft middle along with the firmer outer areas.
– Nino Lombardi says: “For me the best way to eat mozzarella is representing the colors of our nation by adding tomato and basil to the white cheese. This fully reflects the tradition of our Mediterranean cuisine.”

Rossopomodoro Launches The Pastiera

Pastiera

“A cake as delicious as the voice of a siren”

Authentic Neapolitan restaurant Rossopomodoro is bringing Naples to London this April with Pastiera; the traditional Neapolitan cake. Pastiera is a wheat cake made with ricotta cheese and candied oranges prepared by families throughout the Neapolitan region. There are several stories around the origins as far back as Constatine the Emperor however our favourite is the ancient legend of the siren Partenope.

The Legend of Pastiera:

Partenope would rise from the water of the Gulf of Naples every Spring singing enchanting songs and delighting people with her voice. Apparently one year the people of Naples fell so in love with her songs that they decided to offer her the most precious products of their land. Seven of the most beautiful girls of the area gave the beautiful siren flour, ricotta, eggs, wheat, orange blossom water and spices, including cinnamon and sugar. Partenope, thrilled with her gifts, decided to return to her home under the sea and offer her gifts to the Gods. To honour her beauty the Gods mixed the ingredients together creating a cake as delicious as the voice of the siren; The Neopolitan Pastiera.*

Availability:

The Neapolitan Pastiera, priced £5.95 per portion, will be available in Rossopomodoro restaurants in Camden, Chelsea, Covent Garden, Hoxton, Oxford Street, Swiss Cottage and Wandsworth from Easter weekend and will remain on the menu until the end of April.

Mario Romano, Marketing Manager:

“Rossopomodoro offers the most authentic Neapolitan pizza experience outside Napoli and we are proud to introduce this seasonal traditional Neapolitan dessert. Every household in Naples either bakes or buys a Pastiera to celebrate Easter and we want our diners to experience this taste of Naples in our restaurants from now until the end of April. Neapolitans love the taste of Pastiera and we hope our diners also enjoy this taste of our tradition.”

Pastiera Fact:

The Neopolitan pastier was the only thing that could cheer up Queen Maria Teresa of Hapsburg who was known as the “queen who never smiles”. Her husband, Ferdinand II of Bourbon the King of the two Sicilies, was able to convince her to taste the slice of pastier, and the Queen smiled in satisfaction.*
