Vera Pasta uses natural ingredients and utilizes the age-old technique of pasta extrusion, which originated from the South of Italy. ‘To extrude’ is defined as ‘to push out’ or ‘to shape’, and through this method of creating fresh pasta, dough is pushed through bronze dies which hold the shapes of common pastas. Once pushed through, the pasta dough comes out looking like the pastas we know and love.
Using authentic and time-tested methods he absorbed during his remarkable exploration of Italy, Chef Joe D’Andrea crafts homemade artisan pasta that consistently engenders delicious descriptions, feedback and reviews - from “genuine, delicate and superb” to “couldn’t make it better ourselves.”
Chef D’Andrea is emphatic about the diligence in the details - the simple ingredients, the slow process and the wholesome experience.
