Fashionable Pasta

This is a must for every fashionista who loves to cook or at least eat. Dolce & Gabbana has signed the new look of Di Martino pasta. A special edition celebrating the Italian excellence through the colours, symbols and monuments identifying their home country the designer duo is so proud of.

The new packs designed by Dolce & Gabbana have become real postcards from Italy, that are going to enliven and scent tables worldwide thanks to their lively Mediterranean design. But the designers haven’t turned chefs for the project, the pasta itself is made by its aforementioned collaborator.

SPAGHETTI
– al dente in 8 minutes
Long circular shape whose appearance evokes a twine. They immediately bond with everybody tasting them: impossible to resist them, especially when paired to simple and genuine seasonings.

PENNE MEZZANI RIGATE
– al dente in 10 minutes
Short shape, featuring the same section of mezzani, a striped surface and an oblique cut. They are perfect with meat or cheese sauces.

MISTA CORTA
– al dente in 9 minutes
This mixture of small shapes comes from the old families habit to keep various pasta shapes left-overs and put them altogether into a single soup, usually legumes or vegetable-based.

PACCHERI
– al dente in 13 minutes
Great classic of the Neapolitan tradition, they are believed to be so-called because, when blended with their sauce, they recall the sound of a slap, a “pacchero” indeed. Their strong point? Versatility! Put them in the oven, sauté them in a pan or make a sweet seasoning and serve them as a dessert.

AVVOLTI A MANO
– al dente in 8 minutes
In the past, in Gragnano, pasta was used to be sold hand-wrapped into blue sugar paper called “macaroni paper”.

THE GIFT BOX
All the shapes leading the special edition and an apron designed by the stylists, together into a lively tin box. The most exclusive present for the Italian taste lovers.

The box contains:
N. 2 Spaghetti 500gN. 2 Penne Mezzani Rigate 500gN. 1 Paccheri 500g
N. 1 Apron designed by Dolce&Gabbana

Saturday’s Outfit: Dirndl Time

Lech

Here is my outfit that I wore to the second wedding celebration on Saturday. The party took place in Lech, Austria and the dress code was dirndl. For my foreign reader: This is a type of traditional dress worn in Bavaria, Austria and other Alpine areas. What might seem to you more like a historical costume, is pretty normal for us and it is definitely a look that suits every woman.

I wanted to go for a not so traditional outfit and have been collecting designer pieces over many years. Here is the outcome:

Checked Dress with Black Silk Lining, Shoes, Blouse, Choker and Hat by Dolce & Gabbana, Apron by Prada, Embroidered Bag by Valentino, Earrings, Ring, Badges and Gamsbart by Gucci, Watch by Roger Dubuis.

What a fun party!

LoL, Sandra
