FILOTEA PASTA SEMOLA GRANO DURO

Exclusive to Tavolino

A dry pasta made without eggs that cooks up like a fresh pasta, worthy of the finest trattoria in Roma.
(‘Semola Grano Duro‘ translates to ‘Durum Wheat Semolina’.)

Ciao bello! The premium quality of this amazing pasta calls out to you from the shelf: it’s hand packaged with stylish labelling.

  • Durum Wheat Semolina
  • Bronze cut and dried slowly at room temperature for richer flavour development

What is Durum Wheat Semolina and why is it better? It’s a coarse grind of hard, very high protein durum wheat that distinguishes a quality pasta from the rest. It’s what gives premium pasta that wonderful toothsome chew, natural yellow colour, porous texture and richer flavour.  

One of the secrets of great pasta is that it must be bronze cut. Why? Most modern pastas are made with cheaper, quicker teflon dies. Extruding the pasta through bronze dies creates pasta with a coarser, more porous texture to make a better surface for the sauce to cling to. It’s also less dense, which means a lighter, silkier mouthfeel.
