A day of culinary celebration (not just) for pasta fans – Tips and ideas for World Pasta Day

Press release   •   Jul 02, 2019 10:05 BST

Did you know? 25th October is World Pasta Day. Established in 1995 at the World Pasta Congress, this day of culinary celebration is perfect for honouring spaghetti, lasagne and other types of pasta. After all, pasta is one of the world’s favourite food.

To mark the occasion, why not make some fresh tagliatelle yourself, with flour, water, salt and eggs? A little patience and dexterity is all that is needed to conjure up a fantastic dough, by the way the English translation of Italian pasta, for delicious ribbon noodles: pure with melted butter or a good olive oil and grated Parmesan – simply irresistible – and best savoured with friends and family.

The plates and bowls from the Villeroy & Boch Pasta Passion food concept are the perfect choice for anyone who wants to serve and enjoy their pasta in a simple yet stylish way – and not only on World Pasta Day. The spaghetti plate has a recess designed for twisting long pasta and is complemented by the proper cutlery. The large L pasta plate makes it easy to spoon up lots of short pasta, whereas the M pasta plate is intended for small portions – ideal if you're not that hungry and practical as it can also function as a lid for the serving bowl.

Lasagne lovers will appreciate the large dish, which can be used to make lasagne for the whole family, as well as the smaller dish for a single portion. Both forms come with a ceramic lid that can also be used as a trivet: the large dish can be taken straight from the oven and placed on the table, then the contents dished out to hungry mouths, from the small form you enjoy your lasagne directly. And it comes with a practical helper – the stainless steel lasagne server with removable silicone handles that can simply be baked in the dish. Allowing the first piece to be served perfectly, effortlessly and without it falling apart. The flat rectangular lasagne plates, which have a small rim to prevent the sauce spilling over, make the dining experience a true pleasure – whether sitting at a laid table or relaxing on the sofa with the plate resting on your lap. And if you can’t finish everything at once, then the ceramic lid can be used to simply close the dish and store the leftovers in the refrigerator in a hygienic and environmentally friendly way – without having to use any plastic.
