Benedetto Cavalieri | Durum wheat Ruote pazze 500 g

 3,40

The Ruote pazze Benedetto Cavalieri are made with first quality durum wheat semolina.
According to the Delicate Method  water and durum wheat are kneaded and processed slowly and gently, and the dough is dried gradually at room temperature. The Delicate Method preserves the nutritional values of the durum wheat, its taste and typical flavour, and results in a satisfying chew that is typical of high-quality pasta.

Ruote pazze translates to Crazy wheels.
The name derives from the not perfect round shape. Yet when cooked they do not go flat as it happens to paccheri; this allows the sauce to fill freely inside and remain there

WHAT MAKES PASTA CAVALIERI SPECIAL
Ruote Pazze have an exceptional consistency when chewed. The ‘Delicate Method’ invented by Cavalieri, with about 40 hours of low-temperature special drying, generates an homogeneous distribution of proteins and carbohydrates. This gives Ruote Pazze an homogeneous consistency from the core to the surface and a ‘delicious chewiness’ when cooked al dente

Description

The Ruote Pazze (Crazy Wheels) have a wheel shape with an outer crown, hub and six spokes.
Crown, hub and spokes have different thicknesses, and this gives a particular sensation to the chewing.

The Ruote Pazze mould is mentioned in a 1938 inventory of the Benedetto Cavalieri pasta factory. Since then, the Ruote Pazze have been a great ongoing success in Italy and abroad.
The Ruote pazze are in the menus of some of the best restaurants in the world.

BENEDETTO CAVALIERI ITALIAN 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.

Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta is 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!
