Bucatini

500g - FA94

$5.99

Bucatini is a long pasta with a hole inside, which facilitates uniform cooking and the ability to hold sauce. They are dried hanging on a wooden drying rack and packed by hand. Their characteristic "U" shape is a symbol of artisanal production and cannot be reproduced industrially. We use a high-quality bronze die to make this pasta, which gives it a nice porous texture to which the sauce adheres more easily.

Description

Bucatini is a long pasta with a hole inside, which facilitates uniform cooking and the ability to hold sauce. They are dried hanging on a wooden drying rack and packed by hand. Their characteristic "U" shape is a symbol of artisanal production and cannot be reproduced industrially. We use a high-quality bronze die to make this pasta, which gives it a nice porous texture to which the sauce adheres more easily. 

Uses

They are icons of Roman cuisine, known for famous dishes such as cacio e pepe, amatriciana and carbonara.

Distinctives attributes

The difference is obvious when our product is compared to mass-produced pasta, extruded in Teflon dies: They are shiny and smooth, which means the sauce can't properly coat the pasta and sinks to the bottom of the plate instead.

Our pasta is produced in one of Italy's purest, most pollutant-free areas: the mountains of the Antola natural reserve. It is made with spring water from the reserve and glyphosate-free Italian durum wheat semolina of the highest quality.

To achieve a classic al dente consistency, our artisanal pasta undergoes a slow drying process at 30°C for 12 to 20 hours, depending on thickness. This ensures the centre of the pasta stays firmer and cooks more slowly once plunged into boiling water. Thanks to this consistency, your pasta dishes will be a success, every time.

Artisan

The Minaglia brothers have been making artisanal pasta for over 30 years in their hometown of Montoggio, located in the Apennine mountains near Genoa, Italy, a remarkably beautiful region just a short distance from the Antola nature park. Using only their artisanal expertise and guaranteed 100% Italian ingredients, such as pure spring water and locally grown durum wheat semolina, Paolo and Francesco strive to preserve the centuries-old regional tradition of extruding pasta in bronze dies. They are ranked among the world's top specialty Ligurian pasta makers, earning international accolades for their delicious, unparalleled products.

Origin

Now made in Montoggio, Liguria in Italy and iconized in Rome, their roots are actually Sicilian. In his book, De Arte Coquinaria (1480) famous chef of the time Martino da Como, refers to "Sicilian macaroni" and describes the production process for bucatini in detail.
