Homemade gluten-free pasta — can it be done? I used to help my mom roll wheat pasta dough through a hand-cranked pasta machine and then hang it out to dry on clothes drying racks! Freshly-made pasta has such a wonderful texture and taste. If you eat gluten-free, you rely on packaged dry pasta as your substitute. It’s good, but to experience fresh pasta again would be such a treat. After watching Jacqueline Mallorca make fresh gluten-free pasta, I think I may soon get together with my mom to relive our pasta-making days!
Jacqueline Mallorca is the author of the cookbook “Gluten Free Italian, Over 150 Irresistible Recipes without Wheat — from Crostini to Tiramisu.” She was also the guest speaker at our December 2009 meeting of the Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin. Today she appeared on the View from the Bay to demonstrate how to make gluten-free pasta. Here is the clip from the show:
If you are interested in getting together for a specially arranged gluten-free Italian dinner in San Francisco with Jacqueline Mallorca and members of GIG of Marin, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
I wonder if she got to see Harrison Ford who was also on the show today!
