Pasta, pasta, pasta...It’s a universal food that nearly everybody loves; thank you, Marco Polo, for introducing it to Europe, we owe you….A big one. Pasta is a confirmation that simplicity is the key to brilliance. It goes almost with everything - every kind of meat, vegetables, cheese, or cream, but let’s admit it, sometimes it gets just too simple, dare to say, even boring. That is what got us thinking: can pasta ever be unpredictable and unanticipatedly delicious?
Well, at Yummy Bazaar, the answer is, of course, it can. That’s why we are carrying Alpina Savoie - one of the best French pasta producers in the world! With more than hundreds of years of experience, Alpina Savoie is the oldest semoulier-pastier in France; even the First World War didn’t stop them from making pasta. That’s what I call oh, la, la, for real! Producing organic pasta since 2008, Alpina Savoie delivers amazing quality products to those who wish to revolutionize their menu! And that is the reason why we chose Les Crozets buckwheat pasta for you to try!
This Alpina Savoie buckwheat pasta is the traditional type of pasta originating from the Savoie region of France, first mentioned in the 14th-century Italian cookbook. These unique tiny pieces of pasta are made from buckwheat and wheat mixture, shaped like small squares, and made with fingertips, hence the name - crozet! Its exceptional taste and unique texture will definitely upgrade your pasta game and give your favorite dish a new life!
Our favorite recipe for you to enjoy magnificent Alpina Savoie pasta is something called “pasta bake” with bacon & cheese, a modern twist on traditional Tartiflette. Good thing it’s easy and quick prep! Cook crozets pasta for nearly 8 minutes. Meanwhile, if you’re good at multitasking, you can fry bacon with onion or garlic mixed with butter. After it’s done cooking, rinse your crozets in cold water, drain and add to the pan. Season with salt, pepper, and anything else you’d like! Improvise; you’re the boss here. Stir it really good and add your favorite grated cheese on top; we like reblochon with our croziflette! Now all you have to do is pour yourself a glass of Chignin Bergeron and get ready to taste the ethereal Alps!
