Stainless Steel Passatelli Maker and Potato Ricer
A heavy duty, stainless steel press for making Passatelli or ricing potatoes.
Passatelli is a traditional Italian dish is typically found in Pesaro e Urbino (northern Marche), Emilia Romagna and Umbria.
Passatelli is a form of pasta made from breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, eggs, nutmeg, and lemon.
The ingredients are made into a dough then passed through the press to form long noodles. They have a wrinkled appearance and a cylindrical shape, of about 8 cm in length.
These are then cooked traditionally in chicken broth although in modern times fish and vegetable stocks are sometimes used.
The Passatelli maker comes with two interchangeable inserts.
The insert with the large holes is best used for Passatelli and the insert with the small hole for potatoes, making it great for gnocchi and smooth mashed potato.
