Benedetto Cavalieri is one of the leading (of a small handful) family owned companies that produce pasta by old-world artisanal methods. Founded in 1918, Benedetto Calvalieri continues the family tradition of making pasta according to the time-honored "Delicate method." Using only the highest-quality, freshly milled hard durum wheat (also known as semolina), the process involves long kneading by experienced hands. Every shape of pasta requires a unique blend of semolina flour and water. Secondly, the dough slowly passes through special bronze dies designed to create each shape and give the pasta a rough-textured surface to which sauce clings rather than slipping off. Lastly, after shaping, the pasta is allowed to dry in antique ovens and rest at low temperatures (from 24 to 40 hours depending on the pasta's shape and thickness). Slow drying at low temperatures retains more of the nutty flavor and aroma of durum wheat. Pure, delicious and versatile, Benedetti Cavalieri pasta is one pantry essential you won't want to be without - buonissimo!
