About Benedetto Cavalieri Orecchiette Pasta
Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta is widely known for:
the rigorous selection of Italian durum wheats that grow in purposely chosen fields especially on the hills of Apulia and Basilicata (South of Italy);
the durum wheat is cultivated without the usual massive use of chemical fertilizers that increases the quantities at the expense of quality.
the processing method called ‘Delicate’: the long kneading, the slow pressing, drawing, and drying at a low temperature permit to preserve the nutritional values of the durum wheat, its taste and typical flavour and to secure a completely natural consistency.
the keenness for pasta, the cure, and the constant research for the best quality that the Cavalieri Family hands out from generation to generation.
