Gualtiero Marchesi, one of the most famous Chef in the world, founder of  “nuova cucina italiana” ( modern Italian Cuisine), has recently presented in Villa D’Este his new dish that it has been created for Expo 2015 : Trucioli pasta with saffron.

It is a culinary work inspired to local furniture artisans; in fact this beautiful dish reminds us the wood shavings that cover woodworkers tables ( trucioli is the Italian word for wood shavings).

A scenic dish for our eyes and definitely delicious for our tastes… here you are the cherished original recipe:

Ingredients for 4 people

gr 320 of trucioli pasta

gr 80 of butter

gr 3 of saffron stigmas

lemon drops

gr 5  of salt

gr 20 of black crunchy rice



Melt the butter in a pot, cooking over low heat,  to avoid that it doesn’t  sizzle.

Combine the saffron stigmas and add some lemon drops and salt; emulsify with a little water. Keep the sauce warm.

Cook your trucioli pasta with abundant salted water. Strain the pasta and add the saffron sauce.

Serve the pasta on a black plate and sprinkle the crunhy rice on.
