The preparation of ravioli al plin is long, as is their tradition, so long as to make them one of the emblems of the culinary identity of the Langhe.

A small "casket" closed by a pizzicotto (in Piedmontese, literally, "plin'") that joins the two flaps. What in the peasant culture was used to seal mixed meats, previously leftover, to avoid wastes, today preserves inside the best selected meats, with such an intense flavour to make this first course one of the few first courses that can be eaten without dressing, or better, "at the napkin", as tradition wants.

In this recipe, our chef proposes it with the ragout from the slaughterhouse, a mixture of beef and pork meat enhanced by six hours of cooking and fine spices.
