Italian Origami: Handmade Pasta at Casa Artusi
This post is dedicated to my dear friend, Sara B. She’s an Italian by birth and a genius in the kitchen by passion and practice. She’s been inspiring me since grade school, and it’ll be a fun day when we reunite in Oregon for an Italian feast.
Homemade pasta is to Italy what chocolate chip cookies are to America.
Everyone makes or knows someone who makes the best, every gourmet has their secret trick, and no one chooses a plastic package when grandma’s making a fresh batch.
Once you’ve eaten a steaming plate of fresh pasta, you’ll forever be ruined for the substitute.
