Antiche Spaghetti di Gragnano

The Quintessential Italian Pasta

A quin¬≠tes¬≠sen¬≠tial Ital¬≠ian tra¬≠di¬≠tion and love affair, spaghet¬≠ti actu¬≠al¬≠ly orig¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ed in Chi¬≠na before being brought by Mar¬≠co Polo to Venice. This rice noo¬≠dle even¬≠tu¬≠al¬≠ly bloomed into a nation¬≠al cul¬≠ture, with the first pas¬≠ta men¬≠tioned in Sici¬≠ly in the 1200s.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This spaghet¬≠ti is made in a small town that is wide¬≠ly cel¬≠e¬≠brat¬≠ed as the birth¬≠place of dried pasta. 

Made with 100% durum semoli¬≠na wheat flour and pure spring water sourced from Mount Lat¬≠tari, Antiche Spaghet¬≠ti di Grag¬≠nano made using a tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al extru¬≠sion process pro¬≠tect¬≠ed by the Euro¬≠pean Union that cre¬≠ates beau¬≠ti¬≠ful spaghet¬≠ti with a firmer bite and tooth¬≠ier tex¬≠ture that is unique¬≠ly Pas¬≠ta di Gragnano.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Syn¬≠ony¬≠mous with pas¬≠ta itself, Antiche Spaghet¬≠ti di Grag¬≠nano goes well with every type of sauce, we love it with light sauces such as toma¬≠to, cream or oil-based sauces as these types of sauces per¬≠fect¬≠ly coat the thin strands of pas¬≠ta even when we twirl it with a fork!

A go-to com¬≠fort food of ours is a tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al spaghet¬≠ti car¬≠bonara made with Guan¬≠ciale Sta¬≠gion¬≠a¬≠to and Pecori¬≠no Romano DOP. Pair with a glass of white such as Pinot Gri¬≠gio or Soave.

If you‚Äôre look¬≠ing for lighter fares, you can nev¬≠er go wrong with a sim¬≠ple aglio olio. A recipe this sim¬≠ple requires qual¬≠i¬≠ty ingre¬≠di¬≠ents to ful¬≠ly bring out the fla¬≠vors of your dish. We rec¬≠om¬≠mend qual¬≠i¬≠ty EVOO such as Frisinio Extra Vir¬≠gin Olive Oil for a rich¬≠er depth of fla¬≠vor and aroma.

The Birth¬≠place of Dried Pasta

Just south of Naples lies a hill¬≠top town known for pro¬≠duc¬≠ing the best dried pas¬≠ta in the world. Lov¬≠ing¬≠ly referred by the locals as Oro di Grag¬≠nano‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe gold of Grag¬≠nano‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthis lit¬≠tle town is cel¬≠e¬≠brat¬≠ed for its air-dried, bronze-extrud¬≠ed pasta.

Rec¬≠og¬≠nized by the Euro¬≠pean Union as a PGI prod¬≠uct (‚ÄúPro¬≠tect¬≠ed Geo¬≠graph¬≠i¬≠cal Indi¬≠ca¬≠tion‚ÄĚ), Pas¬≠ta di Grag¬≠nano ensures a strict stan¬≠dard of qual¬≠i¬≠ty. Made with only high qual¬≠i¬≠ty durum wheat, fresh spring water sourced from the near¬≠by Mount Lat¬≠tari and extrud¬≠ed through a bronze dye, pas¬≠tas made in Grag¬≠nano pro¬≠duce an amaz¬≠ing¬≠ly al-dente bite and a sig¬≠na¬≠ture rough¬≠ness that clings beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly to any pas¬≠ta sauces. Today, only 16 pas¬≠ta pro¬≠duc¬≠ers are rec¬≠og¬≠nized for true Pas¬≠ta di Gragnano.
