AS LIGHT AS THE WIND
Extra fine pasta originates from a centuries-old tradition started in the Northern Italian region Marken: the windy weather in this region often caused the pasta to break during the drying process. In order to avoid this, very thin pasta was created which dried quickly in the wind due to its lightness. A virtue was made out of necessity and the extra thin pasta was sought after all over Italy because of its filigree shape.
Our selection of extra thin pasta is produced based on the same traditional process. Just like in the old days, this extraordinary pasta is wrapped in special paper by hand and, therefore, retains its unique shape and delicate taste of high value ingredients.
This pasta includes a selection of 5 different grain types. An excellent source of fiber – but as with all creations of PPURA, the taste is the focus: the unique combination of antique types of grain leads to the incomparably flavor of the pasta – and the nutty and strong taste.
Ingredienti: Farina integrale macinata a pietra*, farro
