Croxetti pasta from Liguria - history and wine matching


My video tribute to croxetti, traditional stamped pasta discs (4-5 cm diameter) from the Ligurian Riviera di Levante. Stamp designs include coats-of-arms, family crests as well as geometric and floral patterns. A (scant) handful skillful artisans still master the art of customized wooden stamps making – the perfect wedding favour idea… Rough texture is a by-effect of low-relief decorations and helps condiments cling to the croxetti. Wine matching varies according to co-star ingredients.

Stay tuned for more videos!
