Travel to San Miguel de Allende

The coin shaped pasta is made with a special stamp which was first used during the Renaissance period. 


The pasta coins would be embossed with a family's coat of arms or a reference to a special event. Often the design was of a cross, which is how the pasta came to be called crosetti or croxetti. The simple, yet ornate pasta tool is the most stylized of all pasta making tools. 


I've been fortunate to become friends with one of the three woodcarvers in Italy who makes beautiful corzetti stamps. Filippo Romagnoli is a Florentine woodcarver living in the beautiful Chianti region of Italy. 


The dough for corzetti is unique. White wine is incorporated creating a tender, chewy pasta. Sauces are typically light and fresh, highlighting the actual pasta design. Pesto, a regional Ligurian specialty is commonly used.

The Romagnoli family has been making wooden corzetti stamps since

the early 1900’s, when wealthy Genoese families often travelled to

Florence to commission works from Florentine master wood carvers.



"To make corzetti pasta you need flour, eggs, water, and an Italian woodcarver.
