Our method

Attention, care, experience, quality at every stage: from our mill to your table.

Selecting the wheat

Selecting excellent primary materials is the first step, the most important one in fact, in creating unique pasta.

The milling

We have been millers for almost two centuries: way back in 1831, Don Nicola De Cecco was already producing “the best flour in the county” in his mill. To this day, we grind all the wheat in our own mill next to the pasta factory, floating with intense and delicious aromas.
molitura

The dough

Cold water and dough at a temperature of less than 15 degrees: two details allowing us to produce pasta that fully respects the primary material.
impastamento

Drawing

While it is the drawing process that gives the pasta its shape, it is the bronze plates that make our pasta uniquely porous, so it captures all the sauce. Hence, this is one of the special procedures we have chosen to preserve and protect. With great pride.

Drying

Another of the secrets behind our pasta is slow drying at low temperature. It is our way of keeping the sensory properties of the wheat intact.

Riso Ribe

It is the best kind of rice to use in liquid recipes, so for broths, rice and vegetable soups, and vegetable minestrone with rice. Its characteristic versatility in the kitchen makes it perfect both for simple dishes such as boiled rice and white rice with butter, and for sophisticated dishes such as salads and oven-baked dishes.

Hints

For an elegant presentation of a rice broth, the broth must be clear and not made cloudy by the starch in the rice. To achieve this, the rice is boiled in water, drained a minute before it is completely cooked and then tipped straight into the boiling broth.

Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
