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.

“The recipes in this book are like walking down memory lane from my time spent living in Bologna. They are seriously authentic –– and filled with so much butter, pork, and Parmigiano!” – Sarah, founder of q.b. Cucina
