Gustorotondo selected Benedetto Cavalieri artisan pasta for its exceptional consistency when chewed.
BENEDETTO CAVALIERI ITALIAN HIGH-QUALITY ARTISAN PASTA
«Every package of pasta will gain credit from the previous one».
With this forceful message to his 83 collaborators, Benedetto Cavalieri inaugurated his Mill and Pasta Factory with the specific intent to produce first choice pasta. It was July the 7th 1918.
Spaghettoni Benedetto Cavalieri and in general Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta Factory are widely known for the keenness for pasta, the cure and the constant research for the best quality that the Cavalieri Family hands out from generation to generation.
Row materials are rigorously selected. They grow in purposely chosen fields especially on the hills of Apulia and Basilicata (South of Italy); the durum wheat is cultivated without the usual massive use of chemical fertilizers that increases the quantities at the expense of quality.
The Founder developed a method, called “Delicate Method”: the long kneading, the slow pressing, drawing and drying at a low-temperature permit to preserve the nutritional values of the durum wheat, its taste and typical flavour and a completely natural consistency which is still so highly esteemed by gourmets.
Since 2005, Pastificio Benedetto Cavalieri has been appointed Learning Centre of Slow Food University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo (Piemonte). The thematic one-week seminars on pasta-making are attended by students who come from the five continents.
In 2018 the Pastificio Benedetto Cavalieri turned 100 years old!
