Oodles of Noodles

GTF prides itself on high quality ingredients, making food from scratch, and preparing menus with respect for European traditions. Our dishes run a theme of peasant cuisine in Italy.

Our fresh pasta is delicate, smooth, and yet has a distinctive bite. It has “hand taste,” the special taste that lets you know this pasta was made from scratch, with the love and energy of human hands. Flour, water, and egg are combined in perfect proportions and kneaded together. The dough is rolled through a Kitchen-Aid pasta roller several times, folding and refolding before each pass. The resulting long rectangle is dusted with flour and cut into various shapes. Sometimes we make wide noodles, as shown below:

Other times we make fettuccine noodles. Below, the long rectangle is cut into shorter rectangles. Aaron rolls up each short rectangle length-wise and uses a knife to cut it into thin strips.

For ravioli, we use a fluted pastry cutter to make squares with grooved edges. In the photos below, an herb cheese filling has been tucked between two squares of pasta that were then sealed together. Shea delicately brings the corners of each ravioli together and trims off any excess dough. Finally she places them on a baking sheet and sprinkles a bit of flour over these little nuggets of goodness.

We firmly believe that you’ll never leave a meal dissatisfied when our fresh pasta is involved. But you’ll just have to try it for yourself to know for sure.
