Now, because I am just about to talk about my favourite dish, I'll start with a fun fact. Did you know, there are approximately 600 types of pasta worldwide? And you and I would probably know a few of 'em which we can probably count on our fingers. But, that's cool. As long as we get to gorge on this comfort food, we can do away with the details and numbers.
And if you're a crazy pasta lover like me, I've found something that's totally going to rock your world - fresh artisanal DIY pasta kits which offer a true Italian experience. OMG! Called La Cucina, this brand is a passion project which kickstarted during the lockdown by a Mumbai-based passionate food lover, Sanya Parekh. Yep. While her classmates were busy studying, she would spend her time making fresh pesto at home. Being a pasta lover herself, she dedicated her time making and rolling fresh pasta. And while there were DIY pizza kits, there were almost no DIY kits for pasta. After extensive research, she came up with DIY pasta kits which come with pre-portioned, easy-to-make fresh gourmet pasta. And yes, every DIY kit comes with instruction cards. How cute!
The best part? Their menu changes bi-weekly. And till date, we've come across their lip-smacking DIY kits which include ravioli and fresh pasta. Of course, along comes sauce, cheese and extra add-ons. Guys, I am already drooling picturing a hearty bowl of pasta made by me. These little handy kits are perfect for your late night pangs, weekend getaways to Lonavala or just setting up a fine-dine experience without much effort.
The pricing for these DIY kits starts from INR 600 and upwards. (this includes all the ingredients, so you've gotta just assemble and enjoy)
