Alessandra Lauria

Professional pasta maker sounds like one of those dream jobs. Living in Italy, making and sharing amazing food with friends. Yes we can see why Alessandra loves this life. As she says “Why a professional pasta maker? Perhaps because pasta is made with simple ingredients but is also being complex at the same time with fillings, texture, ingredients, shapes and sauces as well as pairings. It’s a never ending journey! It brings people together and it has been family to me when I am not around mine.”
