My New Kitchen Treasure

My quest for one of these beautiful and unique artisanal pasta tools began when I saw Fine Cooking's video series on handmade pastas (Fine Cooking Culinary School: Handmade Pastas). One of the videos demonstrated how to make Corzetti pasta, coin-shaped pasta dating back to the days of the Genovese Republic, when they were embossed with the family crest and served at festive meals.  The Fine Cooking couple used a cookie cutter to cut out the disks, but I found the real deal in Sonoma, CA.  If you love homemade pasta, you're going to want one of these. See more photos and links, here.
