Tast­ing Notes from The Curator

Buca¬≠ti¬≠ni di Grag¬≠nano is a tube pas¬≠ta made of hard durum wheat flour and water. It‚Äôs shape is sim¬≠i¬≠lar to a thick spaghet¬≠ti noo¬≠dle with a hole through the center. 

It is often served with thick but¬≠tery sauces. 


The aver¬≠age cook¬≠ing time of Buca¬≠ti¬≠ni is 9 min¬≠utes. In Ital¬≠ian cui¬≠sine, It is served with but¬≠tery sauce has pancetta or guan¬≠ciale, veg¬≠eta¬≠bles, cheese, eggs, and anchovies. 

Among the com¬≠mon pas¬≠ta dish¬≠es to serve with buca¬≠ti¬≠ni is the clas¬≠sic buca¬≠ti¬≠ni all‚ÄôAmatriciana. This recipe is tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly made with guan¬≠ciale, a type of cured meat from pork jowl, pecori¬≠no romano cheese and tomatoes. 

From a Gen¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion of Pas¬≠ta Makers

Pas¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠cio Antiche Tradizioni di Grag¬≠nano is a team of pas¬≠ta mak¬≠ers and belongs to an ancient fam¬≠i¬≠ly of Mac¬≠caronari or Neapoli¬≠tan pas¬≠ta mak¬≠ers, now in its fourth generation.

Guardian of fam¬≠i¬≠ly secrets, hand¬≠ed down thanks to the expe¬≠ri¬≠ences accu¬≠mu¬≠lat¬≠ed over the past decades, by his grand¬≠fa¬≠ther and father, to work in the major indus¬≠tri¬≠al pas¬≠ta fac¬≠to¬≠ries of Grag¬≠nano, our Mas¬≠ter Pas¬≠ta mak¬≠er begins the pas¬≠ta mak¬≠ing activ¬≠i¬≠ty in 1970.

Still today, togeth¬≠er with his chil¬≠dren, the fam¬≠i¬≠ly tra¬≠di¬≠tion is kept alive. The Antiche Tradizioni pas¬≠ta fac¬≠to¬≠ry in Grag¬≠nano con¬≠tributes, with pas¬≠sion and skill, to main¬≠tain¬≠ing the real¬≠i¬≠ty of the area, which high¬≠lights more than ‚Äč‚Äú500 years‚ÄĚ of pas¬≠ta pro¬≠duc¬≠tion. This his¬≠to¬≠ry and tra¬≠di¬≠tion mean that the town is iden¬≠ti¬≠fied as: ‚Äč‚ÄúGrag¬≠nano- the coun¬≠try of pasta‚ÄĚ.
