Learn to Make Pasta From a Nonna in Italy, Le Marche

Learn to Make Pasta From a Nonna in Italy, Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

While staying at Palazzo Donati palace, in the Northern Italy town of Mercatello sul Metauro, (in Le Marche) I got a tagliatelle lesson from Nonna Lina Mazzanti.

Lina started making pasta at the age of ten, which is not terribly uncommon in Italy. She has won top awards at the pasta competition in the village for the past ten years. If a pasta lesson couldn’t be given by my actual grandmother, Lina was definitely qualified as a substitute teacher. [...]

Maccheroncini or ‘Angel’s hairs’ from Campofilone

Maccheroncini or ‘Angel’s hairs’ from Campofilone | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Italy, land of pasta. Many varieties and many recipes for a centuries-old tradition. From Campofilone, in the region Marche, an excellence of Made in Italy: the ‘Maccheroncini di Campofilone’, which got the mark of Protected Geographical Indication (IGP)  thanks to a rigid protocol of production.

The first certain documents which mention this pasta – also called ‘angels’ hairs’, in Italian ‘capelli d’angelo’ – dates back to the Council of Trent in 1560 and use the following words: “so thin that it melts in your mouth”.  They are also mentioned in the cookery books prepared for some noble families of Marche of 1700. The poet Giacomo Leopardi in its 49 most wanted dishes listed three different ways in which he preferred the Maccheroncini di Campofilone as a reminder for his chefs.
Eggs by free-range hens GMO-free, top-quality semolina flour, a little salt, all strictly coming from Campofilone; water is not used for producing this pasta, whose very thin sheet never exceeds 0.7 mm and is characterized by a thin cut, of at most 1.2 mm. Its production method strictly follows the tradition of pasta of Campofilone, handed down from generation to generation, when housewives worked at home and laid the sheet they had prepared on large slabs of marble, and then let the dough rest in cotton clothes.

Campofilone, the capital of egg pastas

Campofilone è un comune italiano di 1931 abitanti della provincia di Fermo, nelle Marche. Per approfondimenti: http://blog.marcafermana.it/campofilone/
Mariano Pallottini's insight:

You enter the village trough Porta Marina, then you will arrive at Piazza del Comune, which replaced the XV century building and at S.Bartolomeo’s Abbey

Down to the plain there is fortified building dating back to XVI century.

Campofilone is well known for its gastronomic speciality, the popular “maccheroncini”, egg noodles hand-cut, dating back to XV century, even mentioned in Benedictine documents.

Vincenzo Spinosi is not the silent type. A spry, lithe man in his early 60s, Mr. Spinosi was introduced to us as “The King of Pasta,” but as the man himself would tell you, the word “pasta” is something he would gladly remove from our vocabulary.
