However I’ve been intrigued with the idea of making my own pasta for some time.
For Christmas this year my mother gave me a pasta machine, which is exactly what I wanted, so I’m delighted
The model I got was the Kitchen Craft “World of Flavours Italian Deluxe Double Cutter Pasta Machine”. Bit of a mouthful, but it should be able to do pretty much everything I want to do.
I probably won’t get to experiment with it properly until I get home in a few days time, but so far I’ve been checking the device’s instructions and also scouring the web for suitable recipes.
What I’m particularly interested in trying, once I get the hang of things, is flavoured pasta, as it’s usually harder to come by.
The machine itself looks very business like and sturdy:
But cleaning it is going to be a bit different. I’m used to washing things. With the pasta machine you’re expressly told NOT to wash it, but instead to “clean after each use with a brush or dry cloth”. I guess they know best 🙂
