This artisan pasta is made in London by Pastifcio Carlseschi, using stoneground wholegrain spelt, grown in the UK.

Spelt, is a hulled wheat, with less gluten than bread wheat and has a rich nutty flavor. The earliest evidence of spelt is from 6000 BCE in the Caucasus region and southeastern Europe. Eight hundred years ago, Hildegard de Bingen, a German mystic-botanist-artist, praised spelt’s qualities, “Spelt is the best of grains. It is rich, nourishing and milder than other grain. It produces a strong body and healthy blood to those eat it and makes the spirit light.”
