Pasta! A plate of beautiful spaghetti with tomato sauce, eaten anywhere in the world, each bite will tell you: We have come from Naples! We are Campania! We are Italy!
Italy’s best pasta comes from Gragnano, a hill village just outside Naples whose name actually means “grains”, that is how far back the tradition of pasta goes. It is the only pasta in the world with the PGI (protected geographical indication) status. Its superior-quality raw materials (durum wheat, high protein and sturdy with local water) and a traditional slow drying process gives a firm, chewy texture, essential to a delicious plate of pasta!
For the first time Gragnano’s pasta will be showing at FOOD INDIA by SIAL
