The city of Gragnano, located in the province of Naples, Italy, is known as the “Citta della Pasta” (City of Pasta) and reputed to be the birthplace of dry pasta.
LA FABRICA DELLA PASTA di Gragnano is I.G.P. certified. This official certification ensures that all of the ingredients used in the production of Gragnano pasta are guaranteed to be form a legally defined area sounding the the bay of Naples. The pasta must be made by mixing durum wheat with water from the local aquifers at Monti Lattari. The pasta dough must then be bronze die extruded and slow dried in the mountain air. These methods all contribute to the unique flavour and texture of Gragnano pasta. It’s serious business for seriously delicious pasta!
SUGGESTED USE: A close cousin to Fusilli, Gemelli has a double twisted edge that curls in on itself creating smooth crevasses for pasta sauces to settle into. This Gemelli pasta is flavoured with with I.G.P. certified lemons grown in Sorrento, Italy located in the bay of Naples.
