FLAVOURS

The world-famous egg pasta Maccheroncini di Campofilone is a rigorously handmade product of the several laboratories and pasta makers of this area.

The thin pasta sheet is still worked by hand, as it was in ancient times, cut with a sharp knife in fine threads that are then slowly and carefully dried. The original recipe, unchanged for generations, requires the use of 10 eggs for each kilo of durum wheat flour and its refined manifacture is mostly mastered by women.

The largest production of this fine pasta takes place in Campofilone, the small medieval town where it was first created and where you can still have a true taste of it.
