"'a Caccavella" Gift Set with 4 Jumbo Shells, 4 Handmade Terracotta Bowls and Dish Towel
In their own words… “A Gragnano pasta production is an ancient art, historical heritage, culture, traditions and secrets. To be born and to live means to be filled in Gragnano, intoxicated by the exciting flavors and scents of durum wheat semolina, pasta, and the result … like magic … you can not do without! Although we have not been able to resist the magic …. of exciting flavors and scents of Gragnano! “
La Fabbrica della Pasta is located in Gragnano, the wonderful small hill town in the province of Naples famous for over 500 years for itsproduction of pasta, or “macaroni.” Made from simple ingredients (Gragnano spring water, durum wheat semolina, passion, love and fantasy), pasta in Gragnano is said to be have been produced with three different levels of work: at the household level where women vie against each other for the most fusilli hand wraps in 1 hour, in the artisan level where essential secrets and traditions are handed down from father to son to achieve a product of excellent quality; and the industrial level for a consistently good pasta. So, pasta is pretty much a way of life in Gragnano.
La Fabbrica della Pasta has remained at the top of the twelve remaining pasta makers in the region (down from the original 300), and became the very first pasta factory in the world to obtain IGP (Protected Geographical Origin) certification for its pasta. They are also the first pasta factory in Gragnano to make a strictly bronze drawn artisanal Gluten Free Pasta! Created by selecting the best corn and rice flour and adding spring water, the Caccavella pasta is allowed to dry slowly and gently at a low temperature, and then packaged beautifully.
Pasticceria Filippi’s Pandoro, literally “golden bread,” is a buttery brioche cake with rich yellow color (thanks to plenty of free-range eggs) and delicate vanilla bean fragrance. Similar to panettone, but without candied fruit and raisins, this pandoro is made with the Filippi family’s 40-year-old yeast starter and baked in a tall, star-shaped mold until golden. The finished loaves are hung upside down to cool in order to maintain their celestial shape and out-of-this-world texture.
Dusted with the powdered sugar included in the package, your pandoro’s tender peaks and valleys are meant to resemble the snowy Italian Alps in winter.
Pasticceria Filippi has its beginnings in 1972 in Zané, in the province of Vicenza, when Maria and Giuliano began baking authentic cakes and pastries using only the best ingredients they could find. Today, together with their sons Andrea and Lorenzo, the family continues to operate with their philosophy that everything that is made well, with care and passion, requires time. Quality products need “slow” time and attention. You will taste the difference that time, loving attention and quality ingredients makes in all of Pasticceria Filippi products. This is panettone the way it is meant to be.
