GHIGI Pasta combines centuries old technique with a brand new state-of-the-art Pastificio completed in 2011.
100% Italian Produced – all of our pasta is produced in our recently completed pastificio; the newest in all of Italy
100% Italian Durum Wheat – all of the wheat used in our pasta is supplied from the farmers within our consortium, giving us the ability to trace every grain of wheat from our fields to your table
100% GMO Free – our pasta is free of Genetically Modified Organisms
100% Nut and Egg free facility
GHIGI’s pasta manufacturing is 100% vertically integrated. This gives us the ability to monitor and control every stage of the farming and production process of our pasta. Few, if any, of our competitors can offer these capabilities in the market today.
This cut was inspired by an old Neapolitan cut called "denti di elefante," which means "elephant tusk." I don't really see the resemblance, but I'm not an elephant. So I don't think I'm qualified to make that call.
Bucatini comes from the Italian word "buco," which means "hole." It's because this shape of pasta has a hole running down the center of it. Like a straw. You'd think they would just call it "straw." Seems like a layup.
