Bronze molds give less smooth pasta – Plérin: Ty Pasta, the beautiful adventure of the pastry craftsman



Besides how to manage wheat, pasta dough, and all sorts of things still learned during his travels in Italy, James Cann also brought back the bronze molds. “That’s how artisan Italian pasta is made. In the industry, it is rather in non-stick coating, which gives smooth doughs. With us, the molds are made of bronze. This gives the dough a certain roughness on its surface, since the molds are not completely regular. And this roughness gives it a particular smoothness, and also, it allows the sauces to stick better! “, laughs the leader.
