  • NO ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES OR PALM OIL: JUST PREMIUM INGREDIENTS Fiorfiore Ready Meals contain no additives: this line of products is free of monosodium glutamate, flavourings and preservatives. Nothing but real Italian taste.
  • AS GOOD AS FRESH Additives with different functions are widely used in the food industry: the most common is monosodium glutamate, a flavour enhancer and an essential component of stock cubes. Its purpose is to “spice up” recipes and sometimes make up for a lack of taste. Unfortunately, this additive dulls all flavours with an equal "base”. Without monosodium glutamate, flavour can only be obtained via top-quality ingredients and richer recipes, in order for food to taste as good as fresh.
  • FREEZE-DRYING: ONE OF THE SAFEST PRESERVATION TECHNIQUES Freeze-drying is among the safest and most advanced modern preservation techniques.

History and origin of fusilli

Fusilli originated in southern Italy. The Molise, Campania and Calabria regions all claim to be the birthplace of this pasta. It quickly spread to other areas in the south and took on more shapes and variations, such as avellinesi, felittesi and salernitani. But the name "fusilli" definitely came from Naples.

Here, this type of pasta was actually made using a square-section iron very similar to the "fuso" (spindle) used for spinning wool. And that's how fusilli pasta got its name. In some parts of Abruzzo, fusilli are called "zufolitti” because of their resemblance to the zuffolo (a type of flute) and in Puglia they're known as “fischietti" (whistles) or “lombrichelli” (tiny earthworms). Their origin, however, is Arabic.

In fact, fusilli were originally named “busiata” or “busa” after bus, the Arabic word for the type of reed used by the Arabs to make this type of pasta. But in 1924, Italian brothers Guido and Aurelio Tanzi, who had emigrated to New York, invented a machine to produce them quickly and professionally, and they've been called fusilli ever since.

They called the machine Fusilla, and for the first time, the two brothers had managed to make perfect spirals. Lucky sauce that finds its way in and gets to stick around! Fun fact: in Gragnano near Naples, fusilli are still handmade like in the past, by following an original process that involves wrapping spaghetti around an iron wire and letting them dry.

Gragnano, Naples.
