Chef Masterclass: Pasta Fresca, Braised Veal, Taluca Park Egg Yolk by Orazio D’Elia from Matteo

Sometimes it is nice to get a little expert help in the kitchen and create a delicious restaurant worthy dish for friends and family. This delicious Pasta Fresca, Braised Veal, Taluca Park Egg Yolk is by Chef Orazio D’Elia from Matteo Downtown in Sydney.

Of course you could use a store brought pasta for this dish, however we think the homemade pasta is what makes it extra special.



1 kg “00” flour

10 organic eggs

Braised Veal Bolognese

2 chopped onions

4 diced carrots

2kg veal mince

100ml white wine

1L veal stock

Rosemary, as desired

Thyme, as desired

Salt, to season

Pepper, to season

Grated Parmesan, as desired

Ricotta, to serve

Taluca Park Eggs

Fried Tuscan Kale leaves, for garnish



  1. Make a nest with the flour on a clean surface.
  2. Add the eggs to the centre and use a fork to gently mix up the eggs.
  3. Use your hands to gently mix the flour, working the dough until you form a ball.
  4. Let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
  5. Use a pasta machine and make a thin pasta sheet.

Braised Veal Bolognese

  1. Place the onion and carrot into a pot and slowly sauté them over medium heat.

  4. Tie the herbs using butcher twine and infuse in the sauce.
  5. Slowly simmer for approximately 2 hours, season with salt and pepper.
