It’s a strangozzi Sunday  This much loved pasta is part of the culinary identity of my home region of Umbria. Strangozzi (as they are called here) are a flour and water pasta - half type 00 and half semolina rimascinata. Contrary to the way of “stringozzi” are made in Lazio, these are cut and not elongated with the hand rolling method. They are plumper than tagliolini and are sometimes cut on a “chitarra” - though not to be confused with spaghetti alla chitarra, which is made with eggs. In Umbria, this pasta brings to mind the dish “strangozzi alla spoletina” a simple dish with sautéed tomatoes, garlic, basil and parsley, or “strangozzi al tartufo nero di Norcia” a celebration of the black winter truffle called “nero pregiato di Norcia”. It is simply grated finely into oil, then left to steep and release its aromatics.  Although most people associate Italian truffles with Alba in Piemonte, Umbria is also a truffle epicenter for the summer black, the white truffle of late autumn and early winter, and the nero pregiato.  Today, I am going to prepare these with the tame black summer truffles to get my game revved up for the main players that will soon be in the marketplace.  More truffles anon! . . #foodhistory #mediterraneandiet #italianamerican #pasta #pastalovers #pastafattaincasa #handmadepasta #knowyourfood #umbria #foodgram #retrorecipe #foodculture #historicalitalianfood #theeternaltable #italianfoodporn #pastaporn #pastalove #nonna #italianfood #thecookfeed #gastronomy #pastapasta #pastabilities #umbriafood #strangozzi #spoleto #norcia #pastaumbra #eatpasta #truffleseason

Today was the last session of the History of Mac ’n’ Cheese course I did with Context Travel. 2500 years covered. Shown here is the second session that I taught with my friend and colleague Julia Ficara @granofarina , demonstrating from start to finish Bartolomeo Scappi’s dish from 1570 called Roman Macaroni.  It was a very intense journey. I learned so much along the way. Alway grateful. 🙏🏽 . . #foodhistory #foodhistorian #mediterraneandiet #handmadepasta #tradish #renaissance #culinaryhistory #macaroni #italianhistory #foodculture #beyondtheplate #historicalitalianfood #theeternaltable #italianfoodporn #writingabook #pastaporn #sfogliolina #pastagrannies #nonna #freshpasta #gastronomy #foodanthropology #pastabilities #geekgirl #pastaclass #macaroniandcheese #coolfood #coolhistory #learnmore #pasta

Potato gnocchi w/ zucchini pesto + long hot peppers + fried pine nuts v. 12 or 13…… This sauce is based off of pesto alla Genovese with the addition of sautéed green summer squash. Although this would more traditionally be served w/ a shape like trofie I enjoy how the sauce lightens the gnocchi here. Also potato + zucchini all day everyday during the summer IMO. As much as I plan to push the food/menu here into new territories for myself I am very passionate about keeping our pasta dishes simple and focused. 4 to 5 ingredients per turnout maximum has been the unspoken rule- and in a few cases even less… This one is pretty close to how I see it in my head- very excited to cook it for y’all this upcoming week. #gnocchi #summervibes #pastabilities #trusttheprocess #simple
