Quality Gemelli pasta from Naples. Gemelli means twins in Italian and this fabulous shape is made up of two seperate pasta strands twisted together. They bind onto sauces perfectly and it’s very easy to find the perfect al dente point.
Gemelli are very versatlile and lovely with light tomato-based sauces and with cream or cheese-based sauces. They are excellent in a pasta salad too.
THE AWARD WINNING GRANIA PASTA RANGE
Le Gemme del Vesuvio Vesuvius Gems is the name chosen by Grania for this range of gourmet pasta. In the Volcano’s shadow, a group of artisan pasta makers apply their art every day to produce a pasta which looks and tastes fabulous.
Only 3 ingredients are used. The finest durum wheat, the purest water and time. Lots of it.
At Grania, they have revived an ancient Neapolitan production process which involves drawing the pasta through bronze moulds to produce a rough surface which invites the sauce to bind. The pasta is then dried very slowly at low temperatures to maintain all of its natural taste and goodness.
It keeps its shape and consistency perfectly when cooking and the al dente moment is very forgiving in case you just miss it!
The pasta has a lovely golden yellow colour and is another reason they call them Vesuvius Gems!
From: Naples, Campania, Italy
Grania’s Bucatini and Trofie pasta have both won Gold Medal at the Great Taste Awards. Widely considered the Oscars of artisan food in the UK, this bears testimony to the quality of this fine pasta range.
