500 gr (1.1 pounds) - Italy

A story in the making for thousands of years. A number so large that, when it relates to our life today, it is hard to put it in perspective. The history of pasta, like many foods, is clouded with stories that are passed from generation to generation. Clarity on this issue, like pasta water, gets cloudier over time... not clearer.

The ancient Etruscans inhabited Etruria, the area known today as Tuscany, Latium, Emilia-Romagna and Umbria, in central Italy. Some 2400 years ago, the Etruscans of Etruria started to create flat noodles made of farro.

Imagine that every Sunday in the kitchen, the matriarch of the family would create Stringozzi, a long, narrow, flat, squared-edged noodle for la famiglia. With a careful hand, she would create a figure-eight pile of noodles to eat on Sunday - as well as for the rest of the week.

This is what Giuseppe Cognoni's mother still does every Sunday for her family at home in Umbria. Giuseppe's children eat pasta almost every day, where his wife combines ingredients like rice, peas, tomatoes and, of course, olive oil.

Pasta crafted just nine kilometers from the Cognoni family home in a city of only 387 families, these three new artisan pastas are made by the local pasta maker. Following his desire to work with only people who he feels have the same passion for food that he does, Giuseppe personally chose this small producer of pasta who creates these pasta gems.

Etruria Gourmet has taken these classic shapes and paired them each with their own type of flour. Stringozzi is made with Durum Wheat semolina, Umbricelli is 100% Farro flour, and Pappardelle is made of Durum Wheat semolina and local eggs.

After all is said and done, the history of pasta is less important than finding that special pasta amongst all the options that are available today. These three are some of the most memorable and finest quality we have come across. Not "fancy" or made by some exotic "designer" of pasta. Just pasta the way it should be - familiar family pasta that is delicious to eat.

about Stringozzi
Made from hard durum wheat, Strongozzi Pasta is a long, square-shaped pasta. Perfect substitute for spaghetti. But packaged in little bundles, so it is easier to get into the boiling water. Each bundle is enough for 1-2 people, depending on the size of your stomach.
