Fresh pasta in Belgium
Belgium is a multicultural country and for this reason it is easy to find in the shops and local markets a wide range of European and extra-European food products. Looking well, you can find everything, but it is not easy to find a product that is never lacking in Italian homes: fresh pasta!
What is fresh pasta
Fresh pasta means pasta made in the morning to be enjoyed within 24 hours, stored correctly in a perfectly clean environment and cooked immediately afterwards.
The varieties are many: Tortellini, ravioli, tagliatelle, gnocchi, rigatoni, spaghetti, tagliolini, gramigna, macaroni, etc
How to make fresh pasta at home
Perhaps not everyone knows how to prepare perfect fresh pasta: there are only two ingredients: flour and eggs, but, be careful, not all eggs and flours are the same!
For the stuffed pasta, the filling ingredients are choice pork meat, mortadella, PDO parmesan, salt, nutmeg, black pepper, all local ingredients, from Emilia Romagna, of high quality without the addition of preservatives or additives, exactly like our grandmothers did at home.
Where to find fresh pasta in Belgium
In Italy it is enough to go to the local shop and the fresh pasta is presented in plain sight, just made and ready to be tasted, but in Belgium where can we buy fresh pasta?
I do not recommend you to go around the city risking to find something similar to fresh pasta which, however, is not the real "fresh pasta", because you know, for "fresh pasta" yes means a pasta made in the morning to be enjoyed within 24 hours, stored correctly in a perfectly clean environment and cooked immediately afterwards.
My advice is to go to www.nonna-gina.com, choose your favorite fresh pasta among the many proposals (tortellini, tagliatelle, rigatoni, spaghetti, tagliolini, gramigna, macaroni), click, order and receive it within 24 hours of production.
But there's more, Nonna Gina's fresh pasta is not only made by hand, but also hand-rolled with a rolling pin as it once was.
Those who have tried it appreciated the careful preparation of tortellini and all other types of pasta in special containers, an elegant isothermal packaging perfectly functional for conservation and aimed at preserving the product at 5 degrees, and above all a service of delivery with the international transport leader UPS, which ensures the shipment within 24 hours of the order, the same day as the preparation of fresh pasta and the next day home delivery anywhere in Europe, in optimal conditions, as if you had gone yourself in the local shop.
Why Grandma Gina
To understand the difference between an industrial product and an artisanal product like that of Nonna Gina, just make a simple consideration: you are more attracted to the noodles placed in one of the many identical packs purchased in the refrigerator department of a supermarket maybe at very low cost, produced for a long time and long expiry or those that arrive fresh at home, rolled out the day before and still with the scent of flour?
So, whether you live in Brussels, Antwerp, Liège, Bruges or Maasmechelen, why not order some excellent tortellini emiliani and enjoy them as if you were in a nice restaurant in Bologna?
