This spaghetti, made in the tradition of chitarra (a square-sided spaghetti), has a subtle sweet wheat flavor and tender texture. Its delicate nature benefits from lighter preparations - simply toss with ribbons of zucchini and cherry tomatoes with a hearty pour of extra virgin olive oil.
About the Producer:
Working with local farmers, millers, and bakers, Community Grains is helping re-establish a local grain economy in northern California. This dynamic company is pioneering new standards of quality, transparency and integrity in artisanal legumes and whole grain foods. They continue to maintain and forge new relationships with farmers in California expanding their community—and creating delicious food.
Their exceptional whole wheat pastas are made from locally farmed, uniquely milled heirloom grains. Unlike conventionally milled whole grain flour, 100% of the germ, bran and endosperm are retained, resulting in a truly “whole wheat” product with spectacular flavor and texture. Beyond mere “farm to table” relevance, this is pasta with a culinary pedigree. Both as a food community model as well as a superb grocery product, it just plain makes sense – and tastes extraordinary.
