Pasta a la Mamma

January 17th, 2018 | side dishes

Home-made pasta, there is nothing better. Soft wheat semolina is the magic word. I was in a small shop for Italian food. At checkout the older grumbled something grouchy, (which must be resulting from living in Northern Germany…) owner: “Pasta? You don’t figure it out anyway.” On the question of whether he was this opinion because I’m not Italian, he replied unmoved: “My wife tried for 40 years, so you will not get out even there.” Allora! Per favore!

Pasta a la Mamma Pasta a la Mamma

Pasta, it’s really that simple:

Pasta, homemade

500 g soft wheat semolina
5 eggs (room temperature)
process to a smooth dough with your hands and give it through the pasta machine
place fresh pasta on a kitchen towel sprinkled with semolina until you cook them for 2-4 minutes in salted water
or dry the pasta hanging (they can be stored in a lockable plastic box), cooking time for dried pasta is 4-6 minutes

That's how the wife of the Captain does it

I reckon 100 g flour and 1 egg per person, the ideal dough never sticks to the fingers.

With this basic recipe, I prepare all kinds of noodles and dumplings. It’s perfect!

Ceviche at Cantina Popular

“Oh my god”, the captain said during the last shore leave in Hamburg, honoring the first bite of the Ceviche de Lubina… The CANTINA POPULAR is loud at first glance, it’s tight, it’s busy, lively and colourful. The waiters in all that hustle and bustle are cheerful and attentive. One has arrived – in the middle of South America. And Chef de cuisine Cristián Orellanus says “Bienvenidos”!
