Tips & Tricks

Craft homemade, authentic meals using extraordinary fresh flavors and our chef inspired tips and tricks.

Tip: Add salt to the water until it tastes like the sea AFTER the water has come to a boil.

Tip: Boiling your noodles in a pot that’s too small is an innocent error that can lead to a disappointing dish. So unless you’re cooking a single serving of pasta, do as Italian grandmothers do. Use a 5 or 6 quart pot.

Trick: Reserve some of the pasta water before you drain! It's a great addition to the sauce. Add 1/4 cup or ladle full to your sauce before adding the pasta. The salty, starchy water will thicken the sauce and not only adds flavor but helps the sauce stick to the pasta.
