In the Kitchen with Mamma Agata & Gennaro


If there is one thing that is essential in our Italian kitchen besides LOVE and PASSION... it is the pasta! In our family kitchen it's a treasured ingredient... one that is such an important part of our traditional family recipes. When Mamma Agata and Gennaro are cooking for our family or for our cooking classes, we use only the freshest and highest quality ingredients... and of course this is true for our pasta, too!!! Our students have always told us how AMAZING and delicious our pasta is, and now we are so happy to share our traditional Mamma Agata Pasta... from our kitchen to yours!!!


Why Mamma Agata's Pasta?


We are pleased to share with you just a few of the reasons that make Mamma Agata's pasta so very special!!! Our spaghetti and pappardelle are proudly made with only the best durum wheat and following ancient methods that guarantee a wonderful quality and flavour. Only the best for Mamma Agata!!

The most delicious pasta begins with the type of wheat used, and Mamma Agata's pasta is made using only the highest quality durum wheat produced exclusively in Italy. Durum is a very hard wheat that has a beautiful yellow color, even when cooked. The hard durum wheat produces a pasta that can be cooked in the traditional Italian al dente style, just how Mamma Agata and Gennaro LOVE it!! Many pastas are created with softer wheat grains, which creates a softer pasta that cannot be cooked al dente!

The pasta dough is then prepared by skilled hands before being processed by the traditional Trafilatura al bronzo - an ancient method to create pasta using bronze processing plates to draw the pasta out into the different shapes. The texture of these antique plates creates of rough and porous surface on the pasta that you can see and feel. This is one of the little secrets of pasta... that rough texture is exactly what makes the pasta absorb so beautifully the flavours of your pasta sauce!!!

The next important step is the drying process for the pasta!! Mamma Agata's Pasta is dried very slowly and at an extremely low temperature, which is ideal for preserving the texture, colour and taste of the pasta. This process can take from 36 to 48 hours, which guarantees an unchanged colour and flavour for the pasta after cooking!!


Preparing Mamma Agata's Pasta at Home


There are only a few very simple steps to follow for preparing Mamma Agata's Pasta in your home to guarantee that it will taste JUST like when Mamma Agata and Gennaro are working their magic in the kitchen!!! The biggest secret we like to share about cooking pasta is to remember to think about the cooking time divided into THREE parts... first the time the pasta cooks in the water, second the time it cooks in the sauce and third the time it cooks while you are serving it to you family and friends!

To prepare Mamma Agata's Pasta to an al dente perfection, we suggest boiling it in plenty of salted water for about 5 minutes, and then draining and transferring it to your pasta sauce to continue cooking for an additional few minutes for the flavours of the sauce to "marry" with the delicate flavour of the pasta. Don't forget that the pasta will continue to cook and blend with the flavours of your sauce as you serve it to your hungry guests!!!

Sometimes when you are preparing pasta, you might have noticed that no matter how hard you try it never stays al dente. This is not because you are making a mistake, but because you are not using Mamma Agata's Pasta!!! Just kidding... but only sort of, because there is truth in the joke. When pasta doesn't stay al dente, the biggest problem is often the quality of the wheat used and how it is produced. The beauty of Mamma Agata's Pasta is that it is made with only the best durum wheat from Italy and produced in the ancient method to ensure a wonderful flavour and al dente texture when cooked!!!
