Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta, 500g


This variant is currently sold out

Established 1918 in Maglie, Provincie di Lecce, in Puglia. Since the very beginning, Benedetto Cavalieri's focus has been on quality, using the most modern methods to create the perfect dough, and machinery to knead, press and extrude the pasta. Dried pasta used to dry out during transport, so to overcome this problem Benedetto Cavallieri introduced a modern method called "The Cirillo Method" that involved drying the pasta in dedicated rooms containing hot water radiators and huge ventilators. Since 2005, the Pastificio has served as the location of the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo (Piemonte), attended by students from across 5 continents.
