A comprehensive guide to old-world pasta making.
Evan Funke wants you to forget your pasta machine and instead, whip out your rolling pin and a little bit of elbow grease. American Sfoglino is all about la sfoglia–handmade egg pasta sheets typical of Emilia-Romagna. In his debut cookbook, Funke shares his techniques for hand-rolling pasta at home, including techniques learned from his pasta training under the mentorship of Alessandra Spisni at La Vecchia Scuola Bolognese. While hand-rolling pasta may seem daunting at first, Funke makes it accessible and approachable, even if all you have at home is a little flour, eggs, and a rolling pin.
