We were thrilled to be introduced to these pastas by our friend Konrad who sends us our amazing Swiss cheeses. They are unique among the pastas we carry in that they are from Switzerland in the canton of Grigioni in an area called the Valle di Poschiavo which is just north of Valtellina Italy.
This pasta is made by the Fisler family who have run Molino e Pastificio Poschiavo since 1900. Their pasta is made using hard durum wheat and to our eyes, it is ground a bit more coarsely than our other pastas as it develops a beautiful tan color and a slightly more rustic texture These pastas also have a very nice nutty flavor to them. Try them "Al Burro": Toss the hot noodles with softened butter and grated parmigiano - simple and delicious. An exclusive import from Switzerland.
