October is the World Pasta Month Celebration in Italy and other Mediterranean countries.
The only Artisan quality Italian pasta in the Philippines, Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta, has pioneered the World Pasta Month celebration for the Filipinos last October 9, 2015 at SM Mall of Asia, Main Atrium. Their advocacy was to bring people together to appreciate pasta more and to recognize how this dish has been well-accepted in the daily lives of the Filipino consumers. Indeed, it was a remarkable experience for everyone, deliciously made with one of the world’s favorite foods, Pasta!
Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta is produced according to the tradition of true Italian pasta. There is actually an Italian law prescribing that pasta must be made using 100% durum wheat semolina, which is the hardest of all the wheat varieties and has the highest protein content. It is the use of durum wheat that makes pasta “al dente” or “firm to the bite.” Aside from being made of durum wheat semolina, Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta is also made using the traditional bronze die, which gives the noodles ridges, thereby helping the sauce cling better to the noodles for a richer flavor. Plus, Doña Elena uses all natural GMO-free ingredients in its pasta.
