Italian pasta is much more than a simple food; it is a symbol of Italian culture, tradition and identity. Its history goes back centuries and its evolution has witnessed the political, economic and social changes of the country. Today we will explore in more detail the origins and importance of Italian pasta in world gastronomy.

A Rich and Diverse History

Pasta has been part of the Italian diet since time immemorial. Its history dates back to ancient Rome,  where a primitive version known as “lagana” was consumed, but it was during the Middle Ages when pasta began to take the form we know today, because the Italians of that time developed techniques for drying and storing it, making it a versatile and durable food perfect for long journeys at sea and on land.

Over time, pasta became an essential element of their diet, present in all regions and social classes. Each region developed its own variety of unique recipes and culinary traditions that reflect the diversity and cultural richness of the country.

The Typical Italian Pasta: Preparation and Characteristics

Pasta is distinguished by its flavor, texture and preparation technique; to be considered truly Italian, it must be made with high quality durum wheat semolina, water and, in some cases, fresh eggs. The mixture is carefully kneaded into a smooth, elastic dough, which is then left to rest.

Once the dough has rested, it is formed into a variety of shapes and styles. From classic spaghetti to stuffed tortellini, each type requires a specific technique to achieve the desired shape. Importantly, it dries slowly at room temperature, which gives it a firm texture and a unique ability to absorb the sauce.

Cooking is also fundamental to achieve the perfect result. The pasta is cooked in abundant salted water until al dente, that is, tender but slightly firm to the bite. This point of cooking brings out the texture and flavor, allowing it to combine perfectly with the sauce.

Inspired by my tradition 

I always remember the rich tradition I grew up with to create dishes that delight the senses and feed the soul. My passion has always been the fusion of flavors and textures, which is reflected in every dish such as Lasagna Nicoletta or a Fettuccini Carbonara as it is not only a food in Italy; it is a symbol of identity and cultural pride with which I feel very much connected. Its importance goes beyond the table and is reflected in the daily life of Italians, from family celebrations to religious festivities. Its versatility, flavor and ease of preparation have made it a household favorite, Italian pasta continues to captivate the hearts and palates of millions of people around the world.

I am proud to carry this legacy in every dish I make, so I invite you to try my delicate flavors, I am sure you will love them because they have my special touch,
