The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Italian

Description: A type of pasta found in Romagna. It is like grooved penne, rolled and quill-shaped; a hollow, ribbed cylinder. Unlike many such pastas it is not made in long tubes which are then cut, but from small squares of pasta rolled around a dowel on the diagonal. To make the grooves they are then rolled over a ridged board. This all makes for a fantastically labour-intensive process. They are generally served with meat ragù or a ham and cream sauce of some kind.
