I am enjoying the recent re-focus on food and how we grow, make and eat it. I came across this nice project by Italian design student Valentina De Lorenzis, in which she explored the process of making new pasta shapes by hand and using homemade tools (top).
In a similar vein, the Italian design wonders at Arabeschi di Latte have hosted two pasta making workshops in Tokyo, and most recently, in London. Visitors are invited to play with the design using an assortment of tools (left), ingredients and recipes (right). The pasta is cooked on the spot for participants to enjoy. Clearly, the Italians have a strong connection pasta, I wonder what Denver’s food would be? Could be something to do with buffalo meat, but we also have western slope wines, Rocky Ford cantaloupes, green chiles and peaches.
