Farfalloni n° 92

Farfalloni are originally from the north of Italy and traditionally known by local names such as "Fiocconi" and "Galle Genovesi". Historically, there were numerous varieties spread throughout the Abruzzo and Apulia regions, as well as the Bologna area.

The typical shape is rectangular with a scallop edge, pinched together in the centre.

The condiments recommended for Farfalloni are light sauces: sauces made from butter with peas and ham; white sauces with delicate flavours made from salmon and cream; sauces made from mild, soft cheeses with a dash of saffron or curry.

This pasta is also great for preparing delicious, colourful, imaginative pasta salads.

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.
trafilatura

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.

Fusilli n° 34

Fusilli come from Campania and belong to the short, straight cut family of pasta.

In the past, Fusilli were made by hand according to a method that was passed down from one generation to the next. You had to rapidly twist a strand of spaghetti around a knitting needle with a skilled hand. The ability required to perform this procedure is reminiscent of that of spinners and as a matter of fact, the term "fusillo" comes from "fuso" (spindle) which was the tool used by spinners.

This pasta is particularly good with meat and fish based sauces or with condiments made with ricotta. It is also perfect with vegetable sauces too that are prepared with a tomato sauce with peppers, aubergines, olives and capers.

Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
