FRESH MADE PASTA
600g 00 [doppio zero] flour
5 large eggs, plus 2 extra
1 large egg yolk
Pinch of salt
Sieve the flour on a clean bench or a clean bowl, make a well in the middle. Add a pinch of salt into the well, then crack in the eggs.
[Have a bowl of water on the side, so you can wet your hands, to help bring the dough together]. It becomes sticky towards the end of the kneading.
Mix the yolks and flour together in a circular motion and work it enough to start bringing it together in a ball.
Work the dough by pressing with the heel of your hands, then back on itself. Just repeat that a few times, wetting your hands to help the dough become springy and hard and firm to work.
I really enjoy cooking. What separates my ideas from others is the passion, love of flavour and artisan nature of the stories. Food and eating is an event, it should be filled with passion, dialogue and visual excitement.
Hope to share more little stories.
