BRONZE WIRE-DRAWING – Drawing is one of the most distinctive phases in the production of our pasta: it’s the process that shapes the mix of flour and water, transforming it into dough that will be then processed and eventually become pasta. At J-MOMO’s laboratories we produce italian fresh handmade pasta and fresh frozen pasta, using only this technique, which is strongly linked to the italian tradition, to ensure a high quality product with unique features, with a focus on a production ideal for catering services and professional restaurants.
For us it is important that this delicate operation is done strictly with bronze die plates, a noble material that we prefer to Teflon which is instead widely used in the pasta industry.
The bronze die plates are ideal for making pasta thanks to their particular structure and the specific characteristics that give to the final product. The pasta that is obtained from bronze die plates is not, in fact, smooth and shiny as the common pastas, but it’ss characterized instead by a rough and porous texture.
The bronze wire-drawing technique not only gives the dough the desired shape, but it also gives it a particular roughness, a special quality that allows our fresh handmade pasta to retain more sauce and consequently to gain a more intense taste. The bronze wire-drawing technique used in our laboratories, slow, and at low temperature, allows us to make a traditional, artisan dough, porous at the right point and that smells of flour and eggs, beautiful to see and with a characteristic deep yellow color.
The secret of our master pasta makers is also the care with which they realize our fresh handmade pasta.
A prolonged process that goes back to the ancient techniques of the italian tradition. The pasta dough, worked for a long period of time, is then slowly kneaded, pressed and finally drawn in our bronze die plates. An ancient technique that guarantees a genuine and unique flavor, for an unforgettable sensorial experience.
