More Information
Description Orecchiette produced with durum wheat grown in the fields of I Contadini in Salento, milled while preserving a part of the bran to obtain a less refined semolina
Appearance They have the typical round concave shape obtained by a slight pressure of the thumb, the surface is rough and porous
Taste Consistent on the palate and with a delicate grain taste, they have an excellent cooking resistance
Curiosity The wheat is milled just before going into production in order to preserve all its nutritional and organoleptic characteristics. In the pasta laboratory all the operations are performed manually: the product is taken at the exit from the dies and dried at a low temperature for more than 48 hours. Packaging is also done by hand
Our selection We selected the pasta by I Contadini because it comes from a short production chain rich in identity: the durum wheat is cultivated in the fields of the Trentin brothers with a careful approach to the enviroment, the cereal and the tradition; the wheat is milled in a mill in Salento and the production takes place in a local laboratory where most of the operations are performed manually. A pasta that really speaks the Apulian language!
Suggestions To be tried in the classic combination with turnip greens

I Contadini - Ugento (LE) - Apulia

Why we chose them
"I Contadini " farm, run today by the third generation, has been founded in one of the most suitable areas for the cultivation of vegetables, in Apulia, more exactly in Salento, the so-called "land of sun, sea and wind". The fantastic climate of this land, warmed by sun all over the year, together with fertile ground structure and positive sea influence, is perfect to obtain excellent tomatoes and all kind of vegetables. An "integrated production" technique is applied to cultivate more than 20 hectares of open fields vegetables: long tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, courgettes, sweet and hot peppers, artichokes. Vegetables are naturally dried up by the sun of Salento, so that all the water in excess is taken away and the product is preserved in its organoleptic and nutritive qualities. Drying vegetables in the sun is a very ancient art, today almost totally abandoned; even though difficult and delicate, it allows to obtain an absolute unique organoleptic result: softness of pulp, preservation of vitamins, proteins and mineral salts, and a special harmonic flavour which is by far more recognizable. Short production chain and short label: Edoardo Trentin, with his brothers, takes care of the all process, from cultivation to packaging in olive oil, without preservatives
