Tagliata just means ‘sliced’ – a steak which is sliced when grilled. Sometimes, they are served plain – other times, with porcini mushrooms, or asparagus, or butter and sage, or rocket & tomato, or…

 

At any rate, at Bocca di Lupo we buy whole sirloins of 28-day aged British ex-dairy cows, and cut them into whopping 800g steaks ‘for 2’, though they are big enough probably for 3 and serve with rocket salad on the side, everything garnished with rosemary oil, balsamic vinegar and parmesan shavings

 

The trick with steak is to get great, deep browning all over the outside, and cook the inside to an even temperature Most cooks like to cook all the way then rest. I like to cook a little, rest a little, cook a little, rest a little

 

For a 2.5-3cm thick steak, you get to blue in 2 minutes on each side (high heat), then 2 mins rest. Subsequent stages (rare, mid-rare, medium, etc) are each about 1 min each side & 1 min rest. I like to cook to blue and rest, then cook to rare and rest, then cook to mid-rare and rest. Then I serve it, cos I like my steak medium rare – but if you like it more cooked, continue in the same manner. For a steak twice as thick (5-6cm), double all the cook and rest times.

Your pack serves 2 as a main, and contains

 

  • A bone-in slab of sirloin
  • Wild Rocket
  • 24 month aged Parmesan shavings
  • Rosemary oil mixed with balsamic vinegar

Directions:

  • Heat your grill smoking hot. You should be able to hold your hand 5cm above it for 5 seconds without burning yourself (don’t touch it, obviously)
  • Take the steak from the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking
  • Season well with salt on both sides
  • Warm your serving platter
  • Grill the steak on 1 side for 2 minutes. Move it only if it starts to flare. Grill the other side, the same.
  • Then rest 2 minutes and the steak is blue.
  • Cook a further 1 minute each side and 1 minute rest for rare
  • Same again for medium rare
  • DO NOT BE AFRAID to carve your steak too raw – if it looks too bloody when you cut it, you can cook it more before or even after cutting
  • DO BE AFRAID of overcooking it. There is no ‘wrong’ in liking your steak well done – but if you cook it more than you like, there is no going back…
  • Carve the steak off the bone then slice thinly. If the bone is configured to permit standing it up in priapic glory, go for it. Arrange the meat slices carefully around.
  • Mound the rocket up next to the carved steak. Sprinkle some salt over the rocket (and maybe a bit over the carved beef)
  • Scatter the parmesan shavings over the beef and the rocket
  • Drizzle the rosemary oil and balsamic vinegar over the lot

 

ENJOY! Steak isn’t cooked piping hot, so should be eaten soon after cooking, before it gets too cold.

 

Who made my food? - Your food was made by Jake and his team of chefs, working under Jacob Kenedy 

Was all the food made in Italy? - No, your food was prepared in the kitchen of Bocca Di Lupo, Soho (London). The ingredients used were produce from regional markets in Italy, or best of British.

Who chose the wine? - Your wines are from a carefully curated wine list, which is managed by Jacob Kenedy and sommeliers Phill Morgan and Michael Perucci.

What is your return policy? - We cannot accept returns of food. Please email athome@boccadilupo.com if you have any problem - especially if a wine is corked (we can accept returns of corked wine for refund or exchange).

Where's my stuff? - If you're in inner London, your order will be with you between 1pm & 7pm on the day of dispatch. Outside inner London, your order is sent overnight with Parcel Force, and they will deliver on your chosen day. If you have a problem please email athome@boccadilupo.com

Why didn't the recipe work? - We are very very small and learning what we do. Every recipe is tested and written by Jacob Kenedy - if it didn't work either he made a mistake writing the recipe, or you did in following it. In any event contact us if this happens and we'll endeavour to make it right.

How do I store my food? - Store it in its original packaging. Dried pasta can be stored at room temperature, everything else should be kept in the fridge until you are ready to use it.

How long can I store my food? - All recipes are dispatched to be consumed on the received day and the day after, please keep it at the appropriate temperature (see above). 

How long can I store my wine? - All our wines are dispatched mature enough to drink (and be delicious). Some whites and some reds also have ageing potential - email athome@boccadilupo.com if you would like to ask about buying wines to lay down.

What about our packaging? - We have worked hard to make our packaging as friendly and sustainable as possible. 95% of it is recyclable or compostable. Our outer box is recycled (and recyclable) cardboard, our insulation material is made of wool, and so is compostable, or re-usable. The pouches which we send our food in look like plastic, but they're an eco plastic material which is also compostable. Even the tape we use to seal our boxes is paper, not plastic. 

How come the food and wine is so good? - We source and cook with a great deal of love and passion. We don't always get it right - but we really really enjoy ourselves when we do.

How do we handle allergies? - Whilst we have strict food safety measures & procedures in place, and take great care when preparing orders for our customers, we are, as a small business, unable to guarantee that there will be no traces of an allergen in your order. Any request to change a recipe to avoid an allergen that would cause severe reaction or illness will be declined in order to eliminate any risk.

Can I cancel my order? - If you need to cancel your order you must let us know 3 working days prior to your delivery date (excludes Saturday & Sunday). Any cancellations made prior to 3 working days will receive a full refund.

Where do you deliver to? – We deliver nationwide apart from places where next day delivery cannot be guaranteed. This is because our delicious food is fresh and must be kept at a refrigerated temperature throughout its journey to your doorstep. Our eco-friendly thermal packaging will keep it at the correct temperature for 24 hours, getting it to you nice and chilled. This is every area in red on the map below (Zone One), Mainland UK excluding some of the Scottish Highlands.

I'm having trouble ordering! - We will sometimes restrict items to certain areas or certain dates, and not all of the items on our site are available for delivery everywhere. We try to make it clear when we do this, but if you're trying to order and receive an error message at the checkout, please get in touch and we can help, or at least explain.

We deliver across mainland UK, excluding some areas of Scotland.

In inner London we deliver every day except Sunday. Inner London postcodes start with E, EC, W, WC, N, NW, SW, or SE. We aim to deliver between 2 and 7:30pm on your chosen day. 

For UK delivery (postcodes not listed above), choose your delivery day when you order. Delivery is by Parcel Force.  We cannot guarantee a time of delivery, but it will be with you during the day (8am-8pm). Please make sure to provide us with a mobile number for the recipient when you check-out, as Parcel Force may need it to get in touch. We cannot deliver to non-mainland UK addresses, and addresses in the Scottish highlands I'm afraid as fast delivery is not possible. 

We do all we can with love to have your meals and wine reach you in perfect condition. We put our trust in the best providers we can find to have your order delivered without issues, but we are realistic enough to know that things sometimes (very rarely, but sometimes) go wrong. Our delivery is somewhat out of our control, but when issues arise, we will do everything we can to make them right.

We will sometimes restrict items to certain areas or certain dates, and not all of the items on our site are available for delivery everywhere. We try to make it clear when we do this, but if you're trying to order and receive an error message at the checkout, please get in touch and we can help, or at least explain.
