corner view :: what to do in your country
This amazing woman, Fiorenza, created this sheet of pasta with a half kilo of flour, five eggs, a pine board surface, a cherry-wood pole/rolling pin that belonged to her husband's grandmother, and, most importantly, her hands. And when she was finished, she received a healthy round of applause from all of those in attendance at her cooking demonstration. She then humbly continued creating cappelli di zucca in the tradition of Montova in the region of Lombardia at a local pumpkin festival near my home this weekend.
Learning to make pasta or admiring someone who completes this task entirely by hand is certainly something to do in my country of Italy.
Another thing to do would be to pay Fiorenza a visit for a taste of her pasta or anything from her kitchen, for that matter: Agriturismo Loghino Sabbioni. I hope to do so soon.
Corner View is a weekly appointment shared by people around the globe, an appointment started in the spring of 2009 by Jane in Spain and currently hosted by Francesca over at Fuori Borgo. We welcome you to join us; next week's theme is "roadside."
