THE PROCESS TO CREATE OUR SPECIALTIES
Our featured seasonal specialties are crafted in limited-batches, sometimes only once a year! The specific pasta selection changes with the season, the month, or as inspiration strikes.
As Chef Chris begins to imagine a fancy pasta creation, his eyes close while his mind begins to wander between texture, taste & flavor. Taste memories begin to swirl as his mind wanders through the tastes and textures; imagining combinations of flavors, texture and feel of the pasta and sauce.
When the thought forms clearly, Chef Chris sources the premium ingredients needed to bring the flavors together and crafts a delicious & unique artisan specialty.
