The marrow contained in the beef femur is a spectacular component capable of giving an authentic and unique taste to the dishes that contain it.

The round cut

The round cut is perfect for broth and is the most used, it lends itself to multiple stewed processes and offers the guarantee of significantly increasing the flavor of the dish.

The chefs' advice is to use gauze to immerse the osso bucco in the broth, so as to prevent small fragments of bone from getting lost during the preparation of the dish.

The baguette cut

With a vertical incision of the beef femur, the baguette-shaped osso buco is obtained: in addition to the appearance, it is the preparation that differentiates it from the sliced ​​cut.

Excellent for baked preparations , it manages to satisfy the palate by giving the dish a strong and well-defined flavour.
