The choice of pasta

When we think of Italian cuisine, pasta automatically springs to mind. I'd say that this association is more than correct. However, I would like to highlight that not all types of pasta are the same and above all do not go with every kind of condiment. In my shop you can find pasta, snacks and above all you can buy high quality pasta online. The quality of the pasta is fundamental for the creation of a good dish: consistency, precision in cooking and the capacity of absorbing the condiment are all characteristics that make a product excel.

If we think of various Italian recipes, we think of tradition but surely the Italians made variations of the indications and passed them along from mother to daughter. Take the Spaghetti all'Amatriciana, for example. There's no doubt about it that this type of sauce goes very well with the type of pasta but many choose to use the penne style of pasta as an alternative and I must say that I have also chosen this variation once or twice with my children and they really enjoy it. Another idea that I'll give you, is to try mezze maniche style of pasta with a carbonara sauce; in this case I prefer by far this style to a traditional spaghetti. Do you know why? ...the guanciale bacon goes inside the pasta and it all blends together very well and what's more, it is much easier to cook for many people.

If you have a pasta salad in mind, I'd like to suggest fusilli pasta. It is pretty to look at when mixed with tomatoes, cheese, tuna, sweetcorn and it stays al dente.

With a little fantasy and something in the fridge, you can make an absolute quality plate of pasta and enjoy a lovely lunch with the whole family.

Anna's whims

I have been working here for many a year, my shop has become my home and slowly over time I have been decorating it exactly as I always wanted it. I have always loved being amongst many people and I have always thought that a successful gathering is not only necessary for my clients, but for me, too. I know what food shopping is all about and, in an Italian families choose their food with passion to take to the table! We live a more frenetic life, nowadays, but in Italy, quality food is still our motto.

I see it every single day: my clients walk in to buy pasta and some snacks to whip up a quick lunch but everything has to be of high quality. My whims, for example, are the tastiest and every Sunday are there for my family to enjoy together. It has become a ritual, that of trademarking the Sunday table with artichokes in oil, Neopolitan broccoli, sliced aubergines  and so much more that, at only the thought of them, my mouth is watering!

After toasting all together with a good prosecco and having eaten some of my delicacies, we all sit at the table and enjoy our hearty Italian Sunday lunch. It has been weeks that my sons have been asking me to make the recipes of and bit by bit, we are trying them all! Our house is so joyous with these really tasty treats!
