You take dough of wheat flour, mix it with water and / or eggs, turn it into noodles and / or form it into sheets or various shapes, then cooked by boiling or baking and what do you get? The pasta festival at The Leela.
Everyone knows pasta but few know it is a dish with origins dating back to 12th century Sicily.
And in the spirit of pasta trivia, here’s more information about it.
Pasta comes in many varieties due to its versatility. Some pasta dishes are served as a first course in Italy because the portion sizes are small and simple. Pasta is also prepared in light lunches, such as salads or large portion sizes for dinner. It can be prepared by hand or food processor and served hot or cold. Pasta sauces vary in taste, colour and texture. When choosing which type of pasta and sauce to serve together, there is a general rule regarding compatibility. Simple sauces like pesto are ideal for long and thin strands of pasta while tomato sauce combines well with thicker pastas. Thicker and chunkier sauces have the better ability to cling onto the holes and cuts of short, tubular, twisted pastas. The extra sauce left on the plate after all of the pasta is eaten is often mopped up with a piece of bread.
You can do as much mopping as you want at the Pasta Festival at Citrus Leela Palace. They call it Pasta Festa (a phrase following which you are tempted to place an exclamation point.)
They promise flavours ranging from the subtle to the scintillating with what they call ”artisanal pasta”, vegetables and meats infused with handpicked ingredients like Crab, Truffles, Mushrooms, Peruvian Asparagus and more.
Pasta Festa starts from 11th January onwards going on till 27th January 2017.
