Have you ever taken a close look at a fusillo or spaghetto? These and many other pasta types are bronze drawn. If you have, you certainly noticed that they are slightly rough, porous to be exact; they are pale yellow, just like the color of wheat and, if you look really closely, holding it against the light, you will notice the coarse grain of semolina flour. You know where all this comes from? From bronze drawing. It’s through this special process that the pasta takes shape, while the bronze creates that unique porosity that captures the flavors. Bronze drawing is one of De Cecco’s special features, not found elsewhere. In De Cecco this is essential because the primary objective is quality, which needs bronze drawn plates to be reached. Although you never looked at De Cecco pasta closely, you know why it has never “betrayed” a sauce, leaving it at the bottom of the plate.
