Old World Pasta now on Your Plate
Canton, Michigan boasts a rare Italian culinary treasure: Mama Mucci’s Pasta. For the past 29 years, Mama Mucci’s has been crafting high-quality, rolled pastas for choosy chefs around the country.
Following their mother’s secret recipe, Vincenzo and Francesco Mucci produce nearly 20,000 pounds of pasta a week using only three ingredients (100% semolina flour, eggs, water) and small batch processing. Superior quality is also maintained through old-world rolling and kneading techniques. This pasta is never extruded! (Meaning, this pasta is never forced through a machine when being shaped.)
Until recently, Mama Mucci’s pasta wasonly available at fine restaurants. This year, however, twelve different pasta options and their famous pasta sauce are available at retail outlets across Southeast Michigan. Think beef or cheese ravioli, potato gnocchi, fettuccine, spaghetti, and garlic parsley linguine. These pastas will add inspiration and pizazz to your home meals. To elevate your pasta experience, find Mama Mucci’s Pasta at these retail locations.
