Loved Neoapolitan Pasta

Cala¬≠maret¬≠ti trans¬≠lates to ‚Äč‚Äúlit¬≠tle squid‚ÄĚ and the pas¬≠ta resem¬≠bles a cala¬≠mari ring. 

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Pas¬≠ta is a sim¬≠ple prod¬≠uct made of durum wheat semoli¬≠na and water. Its taste and first appear¬≠ance is quite dif¬≠fer¬≠ent from nor¬≠mal pas¬≠tas. Giv¬≠en its ori¬≠gin of Grag¬≠nano, the home of the best pas¬≠tas in the world, one can tru¬≠ly taste and see the difference. 


It is best served with fish or shell­fish and ide­al­ly with sauces that are rich­er and thicker.

An Exper­tise of Grag­nano, Napoli

Fer¬≠di¬≠nan¬≠do II pas¬≠tas use 100 % Ital¬≠ian durum wheat in bag and from the best farm. The water, is giv¬≠en by the near sourced called Faito Moun¬≠tain. Once ingre¬≠di¬≠ents are assem¬≠bled, the mas¬≠ter pas¬≠ta mak¬≠er sifts the durum heat, to con¬≠trol the puri¬≠ty of the prod¬≠uct before start¬≠ing pro¬≠duc¬≠tion. This pas¬≠ta is cut using bronze. Paired with its slow dry¬≠ing process it allows the pas¬≠ta to have its typ¬≠i¬≠cal rough¬≠ness which is need¬≠ed to for it to mesh well with any sauce or condi¬≠ment. The dry¬≠ing process is under a con¬≠trolled humid¬≠i¬≠ty and tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for at least for 24 hours to pre¬≠serve the nat¬≠ur¬≠al qual¬≠i¬≠ty and taste of the product.
