Chifferi Rigate no.33 - De Cecco 24x500g
● Chifferi Rigati takes their name from the German word "Kipfel", a typical Austrian cake in the same shape which was very popular in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany at the time of Marie Louise of Austria.
● The double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges mean that this pasta is perfect with less dense, more liquid sauces, all of which are captured inside it.
● Chifferi Rigati are excellent just with a simple tomato sauce, but are also delicious with sauces made from beef, pork or vegetables.
● A great pasta shape for creating Maccaroni and cheese dishes.
About the brand
Since 1886, De Cecco has been producing Pasta using the best quality durum wheat guaranteeing Pasta with unique qualities and perfect cooking performance.Italian Wheat is selected for it’s flavour along with California and Arizona Wheat for the quantity and quality of the proteins which make the Pasta “al dente”, firm and elastic, one of the characteristics of De Cecco Pasta. Following rigorous quality checks, the heart of each grain is gently ground and mixed with local spring water with the resulting dough slowly kneaded until the perfect consistency is achieved.
The Pasta is cut using traditional bronze drawplates which results in a rougher, more porous surface allowing sauces to beautifully coat the Pasta. This technique combined with a slow drying process creates Pasta with an exceptional aroma, flavour and consistency.
