PASTIFICIO G. DI MARTINO Product of Italy, Naples Since 1912

The Di Martino family has owned and run the factory, since 1912. Passion for pasta is interwoven with family history. Di Martino pasta is made using the traditional Gragnano method.

PASTA GRAGNANO

Gragnano, 20 km south of Napoli, is an ancient village in Campania, founded around 89 AD. For many centuries it was famous for being one of the best places for the production of dry pasta of durum wheat. This tradition has remote origins, which date back to Roman times. Already at that time, this area was famous for its ground grains used in abundance to produce the staple bread. The craft of pasta-making originated amongst the poor, who would use the course semolina flour, otherwise discarded, to make the dough for pasta. Pasta soon gained popularity amongst all echelons of society and by the 10th century had become an industrialized commodity. The name, Pasta Gragnano, today implies both the location and style of production. To be called pasta di Gragnano, the pasta must abide by the following criteria: • The pasta must be produced in its entirety within the legally defined area in and around the Bay of Naples, a territory protected by the IGP certification (identificazione geografica protetta). • The dough must be made by mixing durum wheat with the calcium deprived water of the Monti Lattari. • It is then forced through rough bronze dies (trafilata al bronzo) which give the pasta its characteristic rough surface. • The pasta is hung and dried at low temperatures, around 15 – 40 °C, in the mountain air. No artificial drying methods may be used. The result is a high quality product with a rough surface to absorb the flavour and liquid of the sauce with which it is served. The dried pasta contains a lot of starch which is released into the cooking water – it is best to reserve a cupful before draining the pasta and add it to the sauce before serving.

DURUM WHEAT

Code: DIM-BML003

500 g

A long round cut with a diameter of 1.8 mm. Spaghetti comes from the word spago which means spring. Universally loved, they are best served with oils and aromatic herbs, maybe fish or vegetables. They should not be served with meat sauces - a frequent error outside Italy is to dress spaghetti with meat sauce - the pasta slides over the minced meat without picking it up - heresy.

FRESINE 500 g box

DURUM WHEAT

Code: DIM-BML015

500 g

A long cut from Gragnano, wider than liguine and rougher on the tongue, a characteristic that enables it to take up more sauce. They used to be called pellussielli, because of the slightly hairy feel produced by the rough milled durum wheat, which is what gives this pasta its less smooth, more fibrous consistancy.
